SATURDAY, AUGUST 24TH
From the Top, with Christopher O'Riley
This week, we visit Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver, where our teenagers play with the great Colorado Symphony. You'll hear an outstanding 17-year-old organist join the orchestra to perform the final movement of the Saint-Saens Symphony #3, and meet a teenage violinist who plays Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen while sharing the stage with her parents, who are orchestra members. Also, the Colorado Children’s Chorale sings the music of Randall Thompson.
The Metropolitan Opera, with Margaret Juntwait
A Prairie Home Companion, with Garrison Keillor
The only live music and variety show aired nationwide today, A Prairie Home Companion is now in its 40th year of production. Every Saturday evening, A Prairie Home Companion features comedy sketches, music, and Garrison Keillor's signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon."
