This weekend we’re celebrating the 4th of July with lots of great American music. Whether you’re BBQing with family, lounging at the beach, or cruising along the coast, KDFC will help you make the most of your long weekend.
On Modern Times (Saturday, 10PM to midnight), you’ll hear John Luther Adams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning Become Ocean—the piece that inspired Taylor Swift to make a major donation to the Seattle Symphony. Alan Chapman hosts.
Then on Sunday the 4th, it’s an all-American edition of A Joyful Noise with Brian Lauritzen from 7AM to 9AM, and Baroque performances from the U.S.A. on A Musical Offering from 9AM to 11AM.
At 8PM, watch fireworks while listening to a special Broadway edition of The KDFC Opera Hour featuring selections sung by operatic performers including Kiri te Kanawa, Bryn Terfel and Frederica von Stade.
Happy 4th of July, and thanks for listening!
