The RPO 2014-15 broadcast season

 

Hello. 

This RPO season has been special for many reasons. The level of talent that's appeared with our city's orchestra has been exceptional; guest artists included pianists Stephen Hough and Jeremy Denk (two of my idols) and returning artists Jon Nakamatsu and Christopher Seaman.  And Midori!  I think you will love hearing this season on the radio and via wxxi.org.

It’s a pleasure producing these concerts for you. If you’re interested in digging deeper, you'll find extended interviews conducted by WXXI Music Director Julia Figueras On Record.  When you're traveling this summer, stream the performances anywhere at wxxi.org or via the WXXI app.

Please help spread the word to the music lovers in your life -- then listen and enjoy.


 With warmest wishes for beautiful summer and fall seasons,


 Brenda Tremblay

The RPO in NYC

The Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall in New York City only seats 2,804. But if you are not one of those fortunate few attending the RPO's historic concert there on May 7th, then I have some exciting news for you!

RPO on WXXI

The Rochester Philharmonic is one of our city's cultural treasures, but attending the concerts isn't possible for many in our community. That's why — for more than 30 years — WXXI has partnered with the RPO to make their concerts accessible for everyone!

Simple gifts

Thank you to Luna Galassini for filling in for me over my recent vacation.  I spent time with friends in Philadelphia, Princeton, and Bristol Harbor, and then had a week to get ready for winter, putting the garden to bed and sorting through a big basket of mittens and hats which now sits by the front door.  And rest!  I slept in every day!  Getting enough rest and being healthy is very important to me, and it was especially vital given the dramatic week that followed with the unexpected announcement that the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra wished to end its four-year contract with Music Director Arild Remmereit two years early. WXXI-FM listeners have expressed shock, anger, sadness, and hope that classical music lovers will work through this situation together to support our city’s great orchestra.  Our newsroom will keep you updated on the situation.
