WDAV is broadcasting live this week from the Eastern Music Festival held at historic Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. Our staff is already there setting up our studio-away-from-home and conducting interviews with musicians, composers, faculty, and students. Here are some photos from our first days at the Festival.

WDAV To Broadcast Live From Carolinas Summer Music Festivals
If you intend to be one of classical music’s next great players, you don’t spend your summers flipping burgers or hanging out by the pool. You commit to an intensive multi-week summer music institute where you put in long days rehearsing a packed repertoire and performing with the world’s best musicians and conductors. North Carolina is host to two of the country’s most prestigious summer music festivals, and in the coming weeks, WDAV 89.9 Classical Public Radio will broadcast live from both the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, N.C., led by Artistic Director Gerard Schwarz, and the Brevard Music Center in Brevard, N.C., directed by the charismatic Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart.
