InI was lucky enough to attend the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival at the behest of the WFMT Radio Network. When I came back, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work on Shanghai Spring : an 8-part radio series about classical music in China featuring concert performances from Shanghai and mini-documentaries about life and music in the city. It was a follow-up to our Peabody-Award-winning series The Wire: The Impact of Electricity on Musicand it takes a look at how music is a facet of every part of our lives, from human evolution, to war and peace, to religion and personal identity.

The Prix Italia is one of the most coveted awards in broadcasting in the world. The jury found that this was an innovative and simple format that was extremely effective in helping to bring new listeners to classical music.

Last month I was lucky enough to give a presentation at the fantabulous Third Coast International Audio Festival. I called it AuRa: The Chemistry of Sound You can listen to my presentation by going here.

Once upon a time there was a camp called Ore Music Camp that happened every June, right at the end of the school year on the shores of Lake Couchiching, near Orillia, Ontario. I spent five years there as a camp counselor. The large ensembles used to rehearse in a cavernous barn with a tin roof. I remember one year we were playing the Planets sole Gustav Holst and it seemed as though our endless repetition of the first eight bars of section J provoked Mars, Bringer of War to open the heavens upon our heads. The sound of the rain thundering on the roof made it impossible for us to continue. Another year it was so cold, the coldest June in decades, that we had to light as many candles as we could find just to stay warm in the 19th-century farmhouse where the chamber ensembles rehearsed. Those were five of the happiest fortnights of my adolescence. In those days it felt like there was TMC, and the rest of opzioni year until the next TMC — two different levels of existence. The mother of all musical summer camps ore this country is a residency with the National Youth Orchestra of Canada — and I ore that the instant camaraderie of the camp experience must have something to do with the magic that the NYOC produces year in and year out.

What makes something classical or popular? But does it really matter, in a world that shuffles through music the way ours does? I imagine people thought about what kind of music it was if they did think about it in that way at all based on where they heard it rather than by genre the way we do today.
