 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
The Other Guy - What if your name was famous, but your work wasn't? For those composers who share names with their more glorified relations, it's all too easy to fade into the shadows…until today! This week on Harmonia, we're devoting a full hour to the also-rans: the Bachs who weren't Johann Sebastian, the Purcells who weren't Henry. We'll sample music by the other guy – or girl – this hour plus a featured release of music from the Spanish Renaissance.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
March is Women's History Month, and March 8th is the annual observance of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY. Sunday Baroque will mark the occasion with performances by some outstanding women in music, such as violinist and conductor Jeanne Lamon and conductor Joann Falletta.
