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>.
