Kate Remington

Music Director, Classical music program host

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington received a degree in piano performance and mass communication from the University of Wisconsin. Her first radio position was with Wisconsin Public Radio, which included a wildly successful request program on Saturday mornings. She then moved to Chicago to join the fledgling nationally-distributed, Beethoven Satellite Network, originating from WFMT. Then Kate set out for Vermont Public Radio, to become the chief announcer there. In Vermont Kate met her husband, Dick Roberts, and that's where their son, Sam was born.  Kate and her family relocated to Fairfield to join WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.

When she's not on the air, Kate can usually be found at a stable in Monroe, CT, where she trains her horse, Tonka, in dressage.

Lou Harrison's "Main Bersama-sama" for horn and gamelan illustrates how collaborative playing music is. The title translates to "playing together." We'll enjoy it tonight.

This evening you can choose your own adventure with Dvorak's "Legends" and Janacek's "Fairy Tale."

Tonight we'll enjoy Ravel's complete ballet, "Daphnis and Chloe," in which Daphnis rescues his beloved Chloe from pirates!


Mikolai Stroinski says writing the music for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was the biggest challenge he's had so far. In fact, he wrote two soundtracks -- the in-game music, as well as an album of pop songs that play whenever you're driving through the terrain of the Republic of Georgia.


Bach sent his "Musical Offering" to Frederick the Great as a sort of resume, hoping for a court appointment which was never offered.  Tonight we'll enjoy an orchestral arrangement of some of the pieces from the 'Musical Offering."
