Concierto

(Rochester, NY) – Concierto, a weekly program of classical music presented in Spanish and English, features classical music by Latin American and Spanish composers and musicians. The series will air on Classical 91.5 Tuesdays at 10 p.m., beginning January 6, 2015. Concierto is the nation’s first bi-lingual classical music program of its kind. Whether you are a huge Classical music fan or just a casual listener, you’ll enjoy this series that celebrates classical music of Latin American and Spanish composers and musicians. Hosted by Frank Dominguez, the series offers a freely-accessible path to classical music appreciation.

Host Frank Dominguez has been a familiar voice to classical music listeners on WDAV in Charlotte, NC. Over the years he has played a crucial part in station programming decisions through his various roles as Announcer Coordinator, Assistant Program Director, and currently Program Director. His tenure at the station has seen its transition to a fully professional on air staff, several overhauls of its program schedule, and unprecedented growth in the station’s local programming, from the production of original local series such as Carolina Live and Reel Music to the addition of the overnight Early Shift seven days a week. He has also directed or hosted a number of live concert broadcasts by the Charlotte Symphony, Opera Carolina, Charlotte Chamber Music, the Spoleto Festival USA and the Brevard Music Center.

In addition to this series, Classical 91.5 is pleased to add Fiesta! to its schedule, Thursdays at 10 p.m. It features the hottest Latin-American music from the 16th to the 21st centuries. Click here to read more about Fiesta!
