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.

Our Beethoven Birthday-Eve celebration wraps up tonight with Kent Nagano leading the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in a thrilling  performance of the Ninth Symphony.

We're celebrating Beethoven's birthday a day early with favorites including the Pathetique Piano Sonata and a whizz-bang performance of his Symphony No. 5 conducted by Carlos Kleiber!

Vaughan Williams gives violists a chance to shine with a Suite for Viola and Piano which even includes a Christmas Dance! We'll enjoy it tonight.


Who murdered Nikola Tesla? It's up to you to find out. Composer Cris Velasco says he was hooked the moment he read the stories of the characters in Tequila Works' Virtual Reality experience, The Invisible Hours. On the surface it seems like a straightforward murder mystery: you're a fly on the wall as a detective tries to determine who murdered Nikola Tesla in his mansion. And yet....there's more to every character than meets the eye.

Katia and Marielle Labeque grew up in a music-loving home, and they've shared that love with life-long careers as concert pianists. This morning we'll enjoy their performance of Fauré's Dolly Suite.
