Colin Maier: Oboe Acrobat

Colin Maier

Colin Maier 

Kara Dahl Russell obviously had a lot of fun interviewing Colin Maier (pronounced MYer).   He has very interesting things to say about music education, creativity and serendipity.  His "path" as an oboe-accrobat has been so unique, and charmed, and his resolve to take the stuffiness out of classical music so good-hearted, that he is a joyous new note in classical music.

Vinyl Classics

Remember listening to classical music on vinyl, long playing records? There was a depth and a sound unlike any other. Our newest series, Vinyl Classics, does just that. It returns you to the sound of classical music on vinyl. As host Pete Kosinski says, “It’s something so old it’s new”. Thanks to WSCL’s extensive vinyl, long playing record album collection, we will broadcast classical music as you once heard it, and will hear it again.
