Monday, November 11
 
A garden under snow.  Green pastures.  A bouquet of flowers.  A lovesick shepherd.  Tune in for glimpses of beauty, color, and light in music by Gary Schocker, Herbert Howells, Gustav Holst, and Franz Schubert.
 
Tuesday, November 12
 
An African dance.  A fancy and a world of spirits.  Let music capture your imagination with pieces by Jeff Tyzik, John Dowland, and Fanny Mendelssohn.

A flowing river. The shining moon. A Quiet City.  You’re invited to launch into your morning routine with music by Smetana, Dvorak, and Aaron Copland.
 
Thursday, November 14
 
What could be cheerier than bird song in the morning?  Vivaldi’s Goldfinch concerto!  Wake to nature-inspired music, a suite of Irish folk tunes, and a sweet romance by "the Dean" of African-American composers, William Grant Still.
 
Friday, November 15
 
You’re invited to start the morning with a memory of summer, Renaissance dance music, and a bit of yay-it’s-Friday delirium (in a waltz by Josef Strauss.)
