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.

Brahms gave himself an interesting challenge when he wrote his Serenade No. 2.  It doesn't include any violins! No trumpets or trombones, either.  We'll hear what's left this morning.  

Rich Sowash wrote his "Pastorale" as a surprise house-warming gift.  We'll enjoy it tonight.  

This morning we'll enjoy the luscious Balcony Scene from Prokofiev's ballet, "Romeo and Juliet."  

Since Dvorak didn't include any hints as to the tales his "Legends" might be telling, you can make up your own story as you enjoy them tonight.  

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.
