This Thanksgiving, WPRB wants to give you something to be thankful for. Things can get hectic on Thanksgiving day – the turkey isn’t done on time, the in-laws are bickering, the niece is unexpectedly vegetarian, etc. What better way to keep it all in perspective than some great classical music? “Towe on Thursday” will be presenting the special “Philadelphia Orchestra Thursday” from 6 AM to 6 PM!
Teri Noel Towe writes:
“My co-host will be Mike Cone, a member of the Board of the Philadelphia Orchestra and a friend since our undergraduate days at Princeton University. Mike and I will celebrate the 112th anniversary of the founding of one of the world’s greatest orchestras and the centenary of the appointment of the legendary Leopold Stokowski as Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Midway through this all-day presentation of recordings made by the Philadelphia Orchestra between 1927 and 2012, we’ll première Mike’s recent documentary, Aaron Copland and the American Vernacular, and we’ll also broadcast Mike’s recent interview with popular Philadelphia Orchestra guest conductor Stéphane Denève.
Mike and I hope that you will be able to listen in!”
