Join Radio Lab's Jad Abumrad as he hosts an exploration of classical, rock, and electronic music genres in this refreshing and innovative mini-series. Wordless Music airs Sundays, May 31- June 21 at 6 p.m. on Classical 91.5/90.3/HD 91.5-1. Wordless Music is devoted to showing how different genres of music, from classical to indie, electronic to rock, are more simmilar than conventional thinking might suggest. To illustrate the continuity between all music worlds, the show pairs electronic and rock musicians with classical music performers in an intimate setting. Ultimately, Wordless Music hopes to bring audiences together, to introduce listeners from all worlds to composers they might otherwise not encounter, and to provide a novel concert experience.

In a four-part mini series, with episodes lasting one hour each, Wordless Music will dismantle the musical segregation boundaries that separate musicians and audiences alike. Curious music fans will be surprised as together we explore the similarities between musical genres rarely heard side-by-side.
