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.

Sibelius traveled to Connecticut to conduct the premiere of one of his last pieces, "The Oceanides." We'll enjoy it tonight.

Today we'll head out west with Aaron Copland, and the Four Dance Episodes from his ballet, "Rodeo."  

This evening we'll enjoy Schubert's "Trout" Quintet, written while he was on a holiday at a friend's estate in the mountains near Vienna.  

Today we'll enjoy some of Jeremy Soule's award-winning music from the dragon-filled video game, Skyrim. 

Arnold Bax intended his atmospheric piece, "Into the Twilight" to be the prelude for an opera, which he never got around to finishing.  We'll enjoy it tonight.
