I promised my friends last year that any time I have special events on Classical Discoveries I would post them in my blog. So far, I have generally not kept my promise. Maybe this would be a good New Year’s resolution?
I am a nice Jewish boy who gets excited about all my Christmas specials. Yes, I do!!
Well, not only Christmas specials. After all, I present Jewish inspired music for Hanukkah, black composers for Kwanzaa and one of my favorites, Shall We Dance – a really fun show just before the New Year. If there were any Muslim holidays, at this time, I would have a special for that occasion also. For me there are no religious, cultural or social barriers. I just love all kinds of music.
I am not mentioning now my VIVA 21ST Century marathon since I am hoping to write a separate blog about it.
So this is how it goes.
I added some links from earlier specials. If you never heard any of these, you will get a good idea and to what I do and figure out why I am so excited about these programs. Also, please check my website before each show for more details at: http://www.classicaldiscoveries.org
