Composer Laura Schwendinger Visits The Richmond Symphony

Composer Laura Schwendinger is in town with the Richmond Symphony this weekend, thanks to a residency program Music Alive: New Partnerships. This national program is designed to establish new relationships between composers and orchestras, and to help orchestras present new music to the public and build support for new music within their institutions.

Don't Fret About It

It's all in the numbers for this week's World Music Show (4/2). On the spreadsheet will be some new music from Anoushka Shankar, Karsh Kale and Daniela Mercury. Plus, we'll hear some street music out of South Africa and Ghana to total up the columns. But these are just the side notes to a show that will be full with all sort of beats.

Let's get Cooking!

We'll be cooking up a storm on this week's World Music Show (3/26), from some fiery Latin Rock N' Roll guitar music from the Ecuadorian/New York guitarist Eljuri to some burning New York Salsa tracks from Los Hacheros, it'll be a gumbo of pumped up sounds. Plus, we'll hear part two of the program within a program called "A Different Spin." And we'll take a drive using a roadmap by Complicated Animals as well as hear some beautiful harmonies from the Georgian singers Trio Mandili.
