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 Longtime WGUC announcer dies http://wvxu.org/post/longtime-wguc-announcer-dies <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Funeral services will be held Thursday evening for long time </span>WGUC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> morning host Paul </span>Laumann<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.&nbsp;</span></p><p>Laumann hosted the Kitchen Koncert&nbsp; on 90.9 for 14 years.&nbsp; He retired in 1986 and was replaced by John Birge.&nbsp; Enquirer Radio and TV reporter John Kieswetter reports Laumann previously hosted the Kitchen Koncert on Taft Broadcasting's WKRC-FM (101.9) when the station was doing classical music in the 1960's.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 17 Jul 2014 09:46:49 +0000 Maryanne Zeleznik 29301 at http://wvxu.org Longtime WGUC announcer dies Meet Chelsea VandeDrink, our master recording engineer http://wvxu.org/post/meet-chelsea-vandedrink-our-master-recording-engineer <p>Cincinnati Public Radio’s <a href="http://www.wguc.org/"><strong>Chelsea VandeDrink</strong></a> is the master recording engineer responsible for recording every performance by the <strong>Cincinnati Opera</strong>, <strong>The May Festival</strong>, and the <strong>Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra</strong>, including the <a href="http://cincinnatisymphony.org/lumenocity2014/2014_Lumenocity.htm"><strong>Lumenocity</strong></a> concerts.
