Preview!

Every Sunday evening, The Classical Station presents Preview!, a program featuring new classical recording releases and local arts news. From symphonies to vocal music, from ballet to chamber music, we sample new interpretations of familiar music. A regular feature of Preview! is an interview at approximately 7:00 p.m. Eastern when we speak with performing musicians and composers from around the world.

One of the reasons we do these interviews and publish them here on our website, is to inspire young people learning how to play classical music. So, if you know somebody learning how to play an instrument, why not let them know about this page?
