There's no better way to know a country or a people than through its music. The Spanish Hour with Candice Agree, a new series on Classical 91.5 airing Mondays at 10 p.m. beginning January 4, 2016, invites everyone who has an interest in the cultural life of Spain and the Spanish-speaking world. This one-of-a-kind radio show is designed for both the aficionado and the general listener.

Along with recorded performances of great works by great artists, The Spanish Hour with Candice Agree also presents recordings of live concerts featuring Iberian and Latin American composers, conductors, and performers. Artists and luminaries from the Spanish-speaking world, as well as specialists in the Spanish repertory are invited to share their knowledge, passion, and art through interviews and exclusive in-studio live performances.

Veteran classical music broadcaster Candice Agree produces and hosts this weekly one-hour program. Combining her extensive musical training (Interlochen Arts Camp, Eastman School of Music) with Spanish and Catalan language skills, Candice brings listeners fresh insights into the vast repertory of music from the Iberian Peninsula, the Americas, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Philippines, from the Middle Ages through the 21st century.

The Spanish Hour joins the schedule with Concierto, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. and Fiesta!, airing Thursdays at 10 p.m.
