5-9-20 Face The Music Listings Happy Belated Birthday Brahms & Tchaikovsky!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Face the Music, Host Blogs | No Comments

This week we continue our series of programs with our panelists at home.  The sound isn’t ideal…but frankly not much is ideal these days!  The great news is that we get to have John Bowen from Chicago back on FTM!  Our other fabulous panelists were Jack Fishman from Baltimore Choral Arts Society and Ed Polochick from Peabody and music director of the Lincoln Symphony in Nebraska.  May 7 is the birthday of Brahms and Tchaikovsky.  We sampled symphonies from both.
