Ways To Connect

This week WCQS brings you a special Holocaust Remembrance Week program Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust. This documentary examines the ways in which the Holocaust continues to inform contemporary discussions about hate speech, propaganda, and human rights. Explore stories from people confronting hatred in their lives, their communities, and sometimes in their own hearts.

To celebrate Easter, WCQS will air a portion of this acclaimed 1981 recording of the complete MESSIAH oratorio featuring Musica Sacra and soloists under the direction of Richard Westenburg.  It is considered an ideal mix of old and new performance practices. Parts 2 & 3 make up the Easter portion of the work with Part 2 concluding with the famous "Hallelujah Chorus". The running times for Parts 2 & 3 are approximately 90 minutes and will air from 3:00 to 4:30.

That's this Sunday afternoon with host Chip Kaufmann on Encore.

Tune in Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. for When Words Matter: A National Poetry Month Special from State of the Re:Union (SOTRU). In this episode , SOTRU explores all facets of poetry and its influence in host Al Letson's life. Letson talks to poets from all over the country about the craft, the lifestyle, the resurgence of poems, and of course, hear some incredible poetry.

Join WCQS Public Radio listeners and music lovers for a historic cruise down the Danube with classical music host Dick Kowal. You'll discover charming markets, grand opera houses and the world class museums of Prague, Bavaria, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. We will celebrate the genius of Mozart, Strauss, Beethoven, Bach and Schumann by visiting the very places these great composers lived, loved and worked.
