But there also many of us who have limited exposure to classical music, maybe an orchestra concert in the park, or at an event such as <a href="http://lumenocity2014.com/"><strong>LumenoCity</strong></a>. Over the last several years, performers, orchestras and music organizations have been trying new approaches to engage a much larger percentage of the public to listen, appreciate, and learn about the music of Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Bach, and other great composers. But if you’'re new to classical music and want to hear and learn more, where do you start? Joining us to answer that question is <strong>Laura Sabo</strong>, organizer of Classical Revolution Cincinnati; musician <strong>Heidi Yenney</strong>, who plays with <a href="http://collegiumcincinnati.org/" target="_blank">Collegium Cincinnati,</a> the <a href="http://www.ccocincinnati.org/" target="_blank">Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra</a>, <a href="http://concertnova.com/" target="_blank">concert;nova</a>, and the Amicus Chamber Players; and, <a href="http://www.wguc.org/"><strong>Classical 90.9 WGUC</strong></a> Music Director <strong>Jessica Lorey</strong>. Her blog, <a href="http://wgucmusicblog.blogspot.com/"><strong>Clef Notes</strong></a>, provides a nice forum for exploring the world of classical music.</p><p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 06:30:00 +0000 Mark Perzel 29624 at http://wvxu.org Classical music is everywhere: commercials, cartoons, concert halls, city parks How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency http://wvxu.org/post/how-fdr-defied-polio-win-presidency <p><a href="http://books.simonandschuster.com/Man-He-Became/James-Tobin/9780743265157" target="_blank"><em>&nbsp;&nbsp;</em></a></p><p><a href="http://books.simonandschuster.com/Man-He-Became/James-Tobin/9780743265157" target="_blank"><em>The Man He Became: How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency </em></a></p><p><a href="http://books.simonandschuster.com/Man-He-Became/James-Tobin/9780743265157" target="_blank">&nbsp;</a></p> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:30:05 +0000 Howard Wilkinson 21917 at http://wvxu.org How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency An update on the contentious and expensive Kentucky race for U.S. Senate http://wvxu.org/post/update-contentious-and-expensive-kentucky-race-us-senate <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p><p></p><p> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 06:30:10 +0000 Jay Hanselman 29568 at http://wvxu.org An update on the contentious and expensive Kentucky race for U.S. Senate Custom designed knee replacements gaining traction http://wvxu.org/post/custom-designed-knee-replacements-gaining-traction <p>Increasingly people are losing interest in the "one size fits all" approach for medical care.
