VPR Choral Hour 5/15 and 5/17: Welcome, Eric Brooks!
Help us welcome interim host, Eric Brooks, and enjoy a singalong by Liszt on this week's VPR Choral Hour!
This week on the VPR Choral Hour, we are very excited to welcome interim host, Eric Brooks, who presents his first program on VPR Classical. He'll take us on a musical journey through the 20th century with a varied program, including works of Benjamin Britten, Veljo Tormis, and Jean Sibelius. Even the singalong this week, Liszt's 1865 Missa Choralis, anticipates 20th century harmonies.
Help us give a warm welcome to Eric: tune in to the VPR Choral hour, Sunday Morning at 11, and Tuesday evening at 8.
