Join WHRB Classical as we speak with Christopher Wilkins, the music director of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra. This summer, the orchestra's series of free outdoor concerts at the Hatch Memorial Shell includes a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing presented with the Museum of Science Hayden Planetarium, a feature of songs and spirituals of African-American composers presented alongside a series of panels and discussion about representation in music, and a collaboration with the New England Aquarium which will raise awareness of climate change.
This July 4th, join WHRB Classical for our annual July 4th broadcast from 1-10pm. These nine hours have been carefully curated by Mather Pfeiffenberger, Harvard Class of 1979 and former WHRB DJ. Here, Mather talks about this year’s July 4th program, how his interest in American classical music began, and how this broadcast became a tradition nineteen years ago.
