This afternoon (Sunday, 18 May) Tuesday Musical salutes the musicians and music educators of the future with their scholarship recital. This is part of what keeps the torch of classical music going, generation after generation.
WKSU is proud to do its part, keeping this music on the airwaves so that it fills ears in Northeast Ohio (and indeed everywhere the internet reaches), almost from birth.
Among the heroes in the world of music are the musicians and music lovers who push the boundaries even farther, sharing their passion with young people who might otherwise never know classical music. These are deeply dedicated music boosters who help children discover classical music while their minds are still wide open to it. They teach kids that listening to classical music is rewarding — and that making it is sheer joy.
Despite the diminished state of music education in many of the world’s nations, these music lovers keep the torch burning. Often they take it to unexpected and music-hungry places.
Some are taking it deep into the rural heart of Bolivia, for example. There children are discovering — and making — Baroque and classical music.
