CLASSICAL 101 LAUNCHES BILINGUAL SHOW
Columbus, July 24, 2014: WOSU Public Media has
announced the launch of ‘Concierto’, a bilingual,
classical music program on Saturday evenings from 8 p.m. to 10
p.m. on Classical 101 beginning August 2, 2014.
‘Concierto’, the new weekly program presented in Spanish and
English, is hosted by Frank Domínguez and will highlight
selections by Spanish and Latin-American composers and
performers. A typical show may offer music of Smetana and
Schubert as well as Sojo, Blasco and Soler, with performances by
Jose Carreras and Pablo Casals.
About a classical music program in Spanish, Dominguez says,
“With ‘Concierto’, we are creating a perfect entryway to
classical music for Latinos in America…Hispanic culture is more
diverse than merengue and mariachi! Classical music has strong,
deep roots in all the Americas, and ‘Concierto’s’ programming
reflects that diversity. This is truly international music.”
Moreover, the bilingual presentation offers listeners an
opportunity to hone or acquire second-language skills.
‘Concierto’ is produced by WDAV Classical Public Radio in North
Carolina and is America's first nationally distributed bilingual
(Spanish-English) classical music program.
