Taste of the Holidays

St. Paul, Minn. — As the host of Regional Spotlight on Classical MPR, I have long been committed to the rich and vibrant choral and instrumental traditions in Minnesota.

To highlight the wonderful music in our midst, I've selected accomplished regional artists with strong Holiday repertoire to showcase in Classical Minnesota Public Radio's 'Taste of the Holidays' series.

Last year, we featured local musicians in a holiday special broadcast on Classical MPR. It was such a success that this year we're doubling the pleasure by adding selections from the broadcast special with delicious recipes from Lynne Rossetto Kasper of American Public Media's The Splendid Table and mixing it all together in a CD.

And it's only available from MPR!

You can also catch selected artists from 'Taste of the Holidays' in a live Holiday concert at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul on December 10th.


Become a member of MPR and ask for a copy of the CD as your thank you gift.

To purchase tickets for the live Taste of the Holidays contact The Fitzgerald Theater - 651-290-1200.

To hear the 2010-2011 Taste of the Holidays broadcast, tune in to Minnesota Public Radio on December 6th and December 14th at 6pm, or on December 21st at 7pm.
