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.

Tonight we'll continue our Thanksgiving music celebration with Dvorak's impressions of America, wrapped up in his Symphony No. 9, "From the New World."  

We've created the perfect playlist to accompany your Thanksgiving, with favorite pieces from Aaron Copland, William Billings, and a playful symphony from Don Gillis.

Tonight let John Rutter's quiet "Five Meditations for Orchestra" ease you into a busy holiday tomorrow.

It took a lot of dedicated musical detective work for finally attribute a set of six concertos to their rightful composer: an 18th Century count who wrote music as a hobby.  We'll enjoy one of the concertos this morning.
