The Los Angeles Philharmonic will be visiting living rooms around the country via its national radio broadcast concert series, which will be syndicated nationwide again this year.
The broadcast, produced by Classical KUSC Radio in conjunction with Chicago’s WFMT Radio Network, will feature 13 concerts from the L.A. Phil’s 2012-13 season. In addition to the recorded concerts, the series offers interviews with musicians, providing background and context for both classical music lovers and newbies alike.
Last year’s broadcast series ran in 238 markets around the country and reached more than 2.8 million listeners, according to the L.A. Philharmonic. This year, 202 markets are confirmed so far, with more expected to be added.
“This broadcast series is an opportunity to bring the concert hall into your living room,” says Brian Lauritzen of KUSC-FM (91.5), who produces the series. “These diverse programs are a showcase for the dynamic virtuosity of the L.A. Phil and Music Director Gustavo Dudamel."
