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.

Lukas Foss said he wrote his Capriccio for cello and piano to capture the wide-open space of the Midwestern prairies. We'll enjoy it tonight.

We'll celebrate the first day of spring with Rick Sowash's suite, "Sunny Days," and springtime music by Beethoven, Schumann and Rachmaninoff.

We'll be celebrating St. Patrick's Day with our music all day today, including Irish pieces by Frank Bridge and Amy Beach. We feature Irish performers, too, including James Galway and John O'Connor. 

Tonight we'll enjoy a piano concerto by Respighi written in one of the ancient Greek modes.

Unwind tonight with some evening serenades by Rodrigo, Brahms and Tchaikovsky.
