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 Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra perform something they will perform at our May 9 concert by requesting a movement from Brahms’ Second Symphony (MSO Classics). If you’d rather hear something from Mozart, request an MSO recording of a movement from his 38th or 39th symphonies. Both are on the MSO Classics label. Be sure to mention that Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Brown County Civic Music Association Concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 9, in Ralph Holter Auditorium at West High School, Green Bay.
