Dear active WKCR listeners, supporters, alumni, and students. We invite you to sign up for our new mailing list: an initiative that we hope can boost transparency at the station as we continue our efforts to provide you with engaging programming. Digital communication has become increasingly vital as the pandemic has reshaped our modes of distribution and consumption. In the past, WKCR sent on-air guides as physical mailers to all of our community members on our mailing list.
Italian mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus has established herself as one of opera's greatest interpreters of the Italian repertoire, from Monteverdi's earliest works to the operas of Rossini and Donizetti. In recent years, Bonitatibus has emerged not simply as a singer but a vital musicologist, who has helped rediscover previously forgotten composers and their music, both through her championing them as a performer and through her music publishing company, Consonarte.

Join us Tuesday, January 17 during our Out to Lunch programming from 1-2:30 pm EST for an interview with New York-based jazz pianist Emmet Cohen regarding his most recent project "Masters Legacy Series featuring Jimmy Cobb." Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. He placed first in both the American Jazz Pianists competition (2014) and the Phillips Piano Competition at the University of West Florida (2011).
