April Is Public Radio Music Month
We at WVTF and RADIO are proud to recognize April as "Public Radio Music Month".
We have some exciting events planned during the month:
On Friday, April 26 we will be hosting the last event in our series, a "salon" (music & conversation) from 6:00-8:00 PM at our broadcast center in Roanoke. You're invited to join us for an evening of art, music, and conversation. And if you're inspired to read a poem or play a piece of music, let us know. Contact us through Facebook at Facebook.com/WVTFPublicRadioMusic, or Email us. If you'd like to make a full evening of it, we'll continue the conversation over dinner at a nearby restaurant.
Previous Public Radio Music Month Events:
On Thursday, April 11 join us at Heartwood in Abingdon for an evening of classical and bluegrass including a jam session along with the Blackberries from Floyd Music School, part of the Crooked Road Youth Music Performance Series. The music starts at 6:00 (until 7:30 PM). Stop by to listen to the music and say hi to our music hosts Cara Modisett and Steve Brown. Bring an instrument and join in. Really.
(Check out the NPR PRMM blog which mentions the event we held in Abingdon.)
On Saturday, April 13 catch us in downtown Charlottesville 2:00-5:00 PM for live music on the Steps at the Jefferson Madison Regional Library. The performance, part of the Tom Tom Founders' Day Celebration, will include the ensembles CHARST! and Red Clay. Check out the music and say hello to music host Cara Modisett and Charlottesville news bureau chief Sandy Hausman.
