When Charleston’s Spoleto Festival USA opens this year on Friday, May 28, WDAV 89.9 Classical Public Radio takes its listeners to the stages and backstages of this world-renowned cultural festival. WDAV partners with South Carolina ETV Radio to co-produce and broadcast Spoleto Today each weekday at 11 a.m. and Carolina Classics each weekday at 1 p.m. Both shows feature performances, interviews and previews from Spoleto Festival USA and the regionally-focused Piccolo Spoleto.
South Carolina ETV Radio and WDAV 89.9 To Broadcast Full Line-up of Spoleto Festival USA 2009 Chamber Music Concerts
Listeners throughout the Carolinas and around the world can hear the full line-up of Spoleto Festival USA 2009 Chamber Music Concerts just days (and in some cases hours) after they are performed for live audiences in Charleston, SC. Thanks to the groundbreaking media partnership between South Carolina ETV and WDAV 89.9 Classical Public Radio, classical music fans can hear these concerts while the Festival is still in full swing – and for the week immediately following its close. The 2009 Spoleto Chamber Music series – as well as two bonus concerts — will be broadcast in the Charlotte NC region on WDAV-FM 89.9 Classical Public Radio and on South Carolina ETV Radio’s Classical NPR stations: WSCI-FM Charleston 89.3, WEPR-FM Greenville 90.1 and WLTR-FM Columbia 91.3. Online listeners can hear it at www.spoletochambermusic.org. WDAV’s Jennifer Foster hosts the broadcasts (unless otherwise noted). The broadcast schedule and featured works for the rest of the week are:
