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.

This morning we'll head to the great outdoors with Beethoven and enjoy his "Pastorale" Piano Sonata.  

Tonight Quartet San Francisco performs Dave Brubeck's classic "Blue Rondo alla Turk"; his arrangement of Mozart's "Rondo alla Turka."  

A performance by pianist Andras Schiff and cellist Miklos Perenyi of Beethoven's Cello Sonata No. 3 was so engrossing that an audience member said he forgot all about his chronic back pain.  We'll enjoy that performance this morning.  

  Michael Torke wrote "Blue Pacific" while on vacation in Mexico.  Let it take you there tonight.
