This article is to inform you about a cultural jewel here in the Valley of the Sun: KBAQ, our classical music station.
Pronounced “Kay-Bach,” here are some of the features of this great channel:
- This Week in Classical Music — the latest in the world of Classical Music. Whether it’s the world of high-end musical instruments or this startling story of a pianist’s worst nightmare, this is a great feature of KBAQ
- Theatre reviews of productions around the valley. One of our own students was in the Hale’s production of The Miracle Worker, which received a glowing review.
- Book notes on new, music-related publications
- Oh, and I almost forgot to mention — the most beautiful music from the past several centuries, playing 24/7, free of charge
KBAQ is available at 89.5 on the FM dial, at kbaq.org, and on broadcast television digital channel 8.4. The latter also telecasts beautiful still pictures of our Arizona landscape.
I’m not getting anything for posting this article, except the satisfaction of helping some of my readers find a wonderful cultural resource. If you have comments, please let me know.
