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.

We'll head into the woods this evening with Schubert's song, "Night in the Forest," and the Symphony No. 3, "In the Forest," by Joaquim Raff.

Benjamin Britten's Four Sea Interludes perfectly capture the emptiness of England's east coast. This morning we'll enjoy them in Leonard Bernstein's last performance at Tanglewood.

Dvorak left it up to the listeners of his Legends to make up their own stories, so you can choose your own adventure as you enjoy them tonight.

Daniel Hope's new album, "For Seasons," features music inspired by all four seasons.  We'll enjoy some music for spring from it this morning.

For her birthday, Fanny Mendelssohn's brother Felix wrote a concerto for two pianos that they could play together. We'll enjoy it tonight.
