Weekdays, 1pm and 8:30pm
In a lifetime of listening, most of the music we get to hear is produced as a studio recording. Lovely as these recordings may be, many aficionados will insist that nothing compares with adrenalized performances before live audiences! The School of Music records their musicians live, and then Classical 89 takes great pride in helping those performances have a long and well-deserved afterlife on the radio. We'll put your ears (and maybe even your heart) in the De Jong Concert Hall, the Madsen Recital Hall, and wherever else the faculty and students of BYU may be performing.
