Sundays at 6:00 p.m. eastern
With David Jeffrey Smith

Every Sunday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., The Classical Station presents Preview!, a program featuring new classical recording releases. From symphonies to vocal music, from ballet to chamber music, we sample new interpretations of familiar music as well as newer music. A regular feature of Preview! is an interview at approximately 7:00 p.m. We speak with performing musicians and composers from around the world. This spring our guests will include conductor Zebulon Highben, cellist Juliana Soltis , and violinist Rachel Barton Pine.

We also offer a look at upcoming events here in our local area. Central North Carolina is home to dozens of orchestras, bands, choral societies, and instrumental ensembles of all kinds. Contact our Production team to have your organization’s event added to our Classical Arts Calendar.
