Classics by Request

Every Saturday from 10 am to 11 am on WPNE, 89.3, WPR host Ruthanne Bessman plays listener’s classical requests on Classics by Request.

Listeners can submit their requests online at or call in toll free during the show at 800-442-7106. This is a great chance to get the word out about Brown County Civic Music Association and hear A Far Cry perform by requesting something from their Grammy-nominated CD, “Dreams and Prayers” (Crier Records), which will be on sale at our concert. Some recordings on it are “Heiliger Dankgesang” (the slow movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132), “The Dreams & Prayers of Isaac the Blind” (by Osvaldo Golijov), “Vecd” (by Mehmet Ali Sanlikol), or from their debut CD “Concerto Grosso in g minor,” Op.6 #6 (by Handel), or “Serenade for Strings,” Op.48 (by Tchaikovsky). Be sure to mention that A Far Cry will be performing in Green Bay at the Ralph Holter Auditorium, West High School, Green Bay, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 29.
