Shorter Days . . . But Things to Look Forward To

Posted at 12:21 PM on August 23, 2013 by Steve Staruch

The Summer Solstice was little more than two months ago. The late summer darkness makes biking home a bit sadder. But my beloved leaves the back-porch light on for me. That always makes me smile.

Love knows no season and neither does the beautiful "stuff" of Classical MPR. Heading into the Fall you'll hear the SPCO live, new voices on Music with Minnesotans and our very own artists-in-residence. Classical MPR will also continue to produce its series of videos for classroom music instruction and later this year, you'll see a newly designed and easier-to-use website.

So while the days get shorter, there are good reasons for you to tune in more often . . . and staying longer too. The porch light is on.
