Tune in Thursday March 18th, 2021 at 8:00 PM for the first episode in the new spring series of The Joy of the Orchestra with the LaGrange Symphony’s Richard Prior. Spring is in the air! You will hear freshness in the music that will be played on WELR (Eagle 102.3 FM) during the LSO hour-long radio show. Featuring Vivaldi and Brahms, this episode is all about looking forward and rebirth, two themes that are perfect to herald a most-welcome springtime. As the first day of spring approaches, it seems quite natural to celebrate and welcome this new period in our existence with music. Richard Prior will specifically look at Vivaldi’s Spring from the popular Four Seasons collection and Brahms Symphony No. 1 in C minor, a piece which ushers in another period – the works of the late Romantic Period. These are two very appropriate pieces.
Join us Thursday March 18th, and every Thursday this spring, at 8:00 PM Eastern on WELR (Eagle 102.3 FM)! This series will run until May 6th.
