Special musical programming via Radio and YouTube for 2020/21.

A Season Nostalgic and New!

  1. A weekly, one-hour radio show entitled “The Joy of the Orchestra” hosted by the LaGrange Symphony’s Richard Prior (tuning-in specifics are below) will feature an exciting array of orchestral music brought to life with commentary by our Maestro. He will give insights into the selections which include historical background, musical nuances and other elements for which to listen. With an even deeper and richer understanding of the music, you will experience and enjoy these works in a whole new light! The show will focus on live recordings from LSO concerts as well as performances by other notable orchestras.
  2. Weekly Video Podcasts.  The video podcasts entitled “Off the Podium” feature conversations between Maestro Richard Prior and members of the LSO community, including musicians, staff and patrons. These are casual conversations around the importance of music in their lives – the influences, passions and ways in which they seek and engage with music. You may not be aware of some extraordinary things our musical family members do in their lives! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our musicians – and more – in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere.
