Today we are pleased to share with you a performance of the first movement of the Glière Harp Concerto, performed by Charles Overton and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in 2015.

Charles was at the time an undergraduate student at the Berklee College of Music and a member of BPYO. He continues to perform classical, jazz, and world music in the Boston are, so keep an eye for him around town as performance venues are able to reopen in the coming months.


We also bring you an Interpretations of Music: Lessons for Life class featuring Mozart's "Deh vieni non tardar" from The Marriage of Figaro, sung by soprano Maria Whitcomb with pianist Paula Vitolo. Maestro Zander coaches: "Don't be a singer, be a person...Singing is just your vehicle...This is music of radiant ecstasy...You take the audience into a world that they have no access to without you...This is the highest art that human beings can access."


We send our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones this weekend. Happy listening!
