November is American Music Month, and WXXI has been playing music by American composers throughout the month. I only just discovered this celebration when I arrived here, and it has been wonderful to get to hear a lot of American music, and to choose some interesting examples to feature on my programs in the afternoons and evenings.
In addition to listening to music, I love reading (sometimes about music, sometimes about time travel and exploding alien spaceships...). I have a few recent books I've enjoyed that relate to American music. Here are my suggestions if you want to do a little reading, in addition to listening. I'd also love to hear if you have any suggestions that I should add to my reading list!
Thank you for visiting the volunteer blog. I hope to post pictures and keep everyone updated more often. This is a great way for us to communicate with each other and I hope you find it helpful!
The Rochester Oratorio Society announced a commission this week in celebration of the upcoming 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and other milestones. The ROS will commission composer Glenn McClure to write a piece including texts, instruments and musical resources from Ghana, West Africa, and Western New York.
I would like to thank all the volunteers that took part in our Radio Membership Pledge Drive! Volunteers took over 2,100 pledges. What an amazing week! Thank you to everyone that helped out.
