Classical Music /
Tune in for classical music every weekday.
Every weekday from 9:00am to 12:00pm, WPSU brings you a colorful palette of great music from many centuries, through the middle ages to modern times.
You’ll hear plenty of famous composers like Bach, Mozart, Tchiakovsky, Beethoven, Debussy, and Rossini. You’ll also hear some music that’s a bit off-the-beaten path from choral works by contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt to genre-bending arrangements by the likes of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and the Baltimore Consort.
