April 16th, 2019

In this weeks WCRI Classical Kids Hour hosts Jamie & Pamela invite you to join them as they listen to Tchaikovsky Discovers America. Based on the actual historical event, this story tells of the great composer’s arrival in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall in 1891 and his famous trip to Niagara Falls. A surprise encounter with a young American girl, Jennie, reveals much about Tchaikovsky – his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. This is a poignant story of the meeting of old world influences and new world experiences; a tale of contrast, courage and classical music.
