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.

Long before it was a Disney classic, The Jungle Book influenced lots of artists. Today we'll enjoy "The Law of the Jungle" from Charles Koechlin's musical adaptation.

Charles Curtis invited Naren Budhakar, tabla, and organist Anthony Burr to join him on a journey through Bach's First Suite for Cello.  We'll enjoy their performance tonight.  

Queen Elizabeth turns 90 today, and we'll throw a little party for her with music from her coronation, as well as a set of variations on "Rule, Brittania," by Beethoven.  

Today we'll enjoy "Four Seasons in Manhattan," a new piece by Alexey Shor, from the just-released album by violist David Aaron Carpenter.  

You might want to listen to WSHU's music outdoors tonight as we enjoy "At Dusk" from Arthur Foote, and Delius' impression, "Summer Evening."
