Christmas is just a couple of days away, and our programming is starting to show it. We have TWO holiday specials today, one at 9 and another at 11.
at 9 a.m. WKMS airs the Paducah Symphony Orchestra Holiday Pops Concert. Dr. Bradley Almquist conducts the Orchestra and Chorus with soloist Barbi McCulloch in a warm rendering of favorites, including “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “White Christmas,” Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus,” and many others.
from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. we’ll be playing St. Olaf’s Christmas Festival 2006 – More than 500 student musicians perform a service in song and word including hymns, carols, choral works and orchestral selections celebrating the Nativity. The St. Olaf’s site has a brief history of the festival and information on how to purchase your own recordings of the program. You can hear a sample of the program at American Public Media.
