Hailed as “a phenomenon” who “pulls together the most intellectually enticing and emotionally gripping [performances] in New York” (The New Yorker), Robert Spano leads his Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in a stirring performance of Britten’s towering masterpiece.

Classical South Florida hosts Bob Christiansen and Valerie Kahler come together on Sunday, April 20 at 9 p.m., to bring listeners an Easter special to remember – From Darkness to Light. This hour-long celebration of Easter will feature some of the hosts’ favorite Easter memories and melodies including Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture; Haydn’s “Alleluia” Symphony; and ”I Know that My Redeemer Liveth” and “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Easter Oratorio, “Messiah.”
So, what’s the best career advice you’ve ever received? Reach for the stars? Be courageous and daring? Don’t try to do everything? Maybe, like oboist Joseph Peters, it wasn’t advice you received so much as a warning. Read more.

This Easter Sunday at Noon, join SymphonyCast host Alison Young for the complete story from prophecy to resurrection in a stunning live concert with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, chorale and soloists.
