Classical 91.5

Cincinnati Symphony

For many of us, just a few notes from Paul Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice immediately conjurs up images of water rising as the brooms carry buckets of water to the Sorcerer's basement.  Enjoy this rhythmic music again, perhaps with the whole family on the July 3rd broadcast.

Guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas strives to inspire audiences with his playing .  Tune into SymphonyCast on October 11th when he joins the Oregon Symphony and feel the inspiration.
