Heinz Chapel Choir Holiday Concert, live
From the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, hear the most intimate Christmas concert in Pittsburgh.  It's usually sold out, but we’ll save you the best seats in the house on the radio as the Choir, directed by John Goldsmith, processes down the center aisle for a candlelit concert in the hushed atmosphere of Heinz Chapel.  Ted Sohier hosts our broadcast.


Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin
For as long as art forms such as theatre, ballet, and other entertainments have graced the stage, composers have been there to enhance the dramatic action through music. This week Bill explores some of the not-so-incidental music that has resulted.
