JULY 22, 2009 – WDAV 89.9 Classical Public Radio is logging quite a few miles this summer in pursuit of the best classical music being made at the Carolinas’ summer music festivals. In May, WDAV took its listeners to Charleston for all 17 days of Spoleto Festival USA. Last week, WDAV spent time at Greensboro’s Eastern Music Festival. This weekend, the 37-foot long WDAV Broadcast RV, affectionately known to staffers as “Camper Van Beethoven,” makes a stop at the picturesque Brevard Music Festival in the mountains of western North Carolina.
As you probably know, WDAV has hit the road again – this time to bring you live broadcasts from Greensboro’s prestigious summer-music institute, the Eastern Music Festival. Midday host Jennifer Foster began our coverage yesterday, and continues today with more music, interviews and insights from EMF. On Saturday morning, from 8 a.m. to noon, you’ll hear Frank Dominguez broadcasting live from historic Guilford College, where EMF is held.
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.
