THOMAS HAMPSON AND SONG OF AMERICA, WEDNESDAYS AT 9:00 PM
The Hampsong Foundation is pleased to introduce Song of America, a radio series that reveals American classic song – poetry set to music by American composers – as a vibrant diary of the American experience. Thomas Hampson conceived and developed the series.
Each hour-long program focuses on a particular topic that sheds light on a larger theme in American history and includes approximately 40 minutes of songs drawn from archival and modern recordings, plus stories and insights from Hampson about the people and events that inspired those songs. Several programs also feature interviews with experts from related fields.
Song of America is heard on WCLV Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
Remaining programs include:
