Giving Thanks to Music at 2PM on WSCL 89.5 FM

Music holds a special meaning. Sometimes it marks a momentous time in one’s life, or recalls a deep-seated emotion that stirs us to our core. And sometimes it changes our lives in a profound way.

In the 2017 edition of Giving Thanks to Music, five especially distinguished creative figures have been invited to choose a favorite composition that illustrates the profound value that classical music has had for them in their lives. As these outstanding people from the worlds of opera, cultural and political journalism, ballet and instrumental and orchestral music reveal their experiences, they and we give thanks for the music that has enriched their and our world.
