Join host Bill McGlaughlin this month on Exploring Music to learn about Dvořák's early career, along with music from Mexico and Central America.

Week of September 5, 2016 - Antonin Dvorak A five-part biography on the life of Bohemia’s most celebrated composer. We start with a look at Dvořák's early life and works, as well as music from one of Dvořák's first influences, Bedřich Smetana and continue with his travels to American where he helped define our early musical identity.

Week of September 19, 2016 - Distant Neighbors This week we’ll explore the music of Mexico and Central America. Though we share a very long border with Latin America, we live in two very different worlds. Their history is thousands of years old, and ours is younger. Come on this journey with us to the deep and rich musical history of our neighbors to the south.
