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.

On his first trip to Italy, Richard Strauss visited all the top tourist destinations, including Florence and the Isle of Capri.  He sends us a postcard with his suite, "In Italy," tonight.

Listening to Jean Francaix's music is so enjoyable, it's like taking time out in a Parisian cafe. We'll relax with his little Piano Concerto this morning.

Alan Hovhaness' Concerto No. 7 for Orchestra gives everyone a demanding part to play. We'll enjoy it tonight.

During its premiere on a summer afternoon, Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 5 created a tranquil oasis for its war-weary audience. We'll enjoy it this morning.

Debussy captured the many moods of the ocean in his suite, "La Mer." We'll enjoy it tonight.
