When classical musicians leave their tuxes at home and meet up with friends to play music in beautiful surroundings, it creates an altered universe. Listen to America's Music Festivals every Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock.
Americas Music Festivals captures that sense
of place - the natural beauty, the excitement of the music, the fun
- in this series of broadcasts from America's great music
festivals. Conductor Marin Alsop hosts the two-hour broadcasts. And
we bring you top performances by dynamic international musicians.
There are 26 festivals in the series, beginning in the west and
working our way east by next year.
