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 as the day comes to a close, we'll enjoy Arthur Foote's impression "At Dusk" and "Summer Evening" by Frederick Delius.

It seems like we've been getting samples of lots of seasons lately, and we've got a musical version of that this morning with Alexy Shor's "Four Seasons in Manhattan."  


History moved pretty fast in the Age of Englightenment, and Haydn captured his feelings about the speed in his Symphony No. 64, The Times are Changed.... We'll try to keep up tonight.

Even if you're stuck inside on another beautiful day, you can still enjoy nature today with Copland's Outdoor Overture and Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony.

Prints by Hiroshige and Hokusai influenced Van Gogh, and even today's anime style. Tonight we'll enjoy a Fantasy on Japanese Woodprints by Alan Hovhaness.
