Start the last day of spring with a taste of summer by Antonio Vivadi. Also in store: a prankster, a grand waltz, and a monster gorilla (John Barry's theme from King Kong.) Also, tomorrow is International Make Music Day, and you'll learn about an opportunity to make music even if you don't make music. (Your preview of an event called "Heart Chant" airs around 8:30 a.m.)
Friday, June 21
You're invited to wake with inspired recordings from pianist Laura Dubin and ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro (both appearing in the jazz festival this week), plus music to welcome the solstice by Saint-Saens. You'll hear Jennifer Higdon's harp concerto from the first commercial recording from Ward Stare and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.
