It's The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert on WRTI, May 4 at 1 pm. The Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ and organist Michael Stairs are two of the biggest stars in a firmament of many! Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin had to withdraw from this performance in March, but it brought conductor <strong>Alain Altinoglu</strong> to Verizon Hall at Yannick’s recommendation, and was he ever in his element!</p> Thu, 01 May 2014 17:24:45 +0000 Gregg Whiteside 7247 at http://wrti.org A Feast for Organ and Brass: The Philadelphians on WRTI, May 4th, 1 PM Lyric Opera of Chicago: LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR on May 19 http://wrti.org/post/lyric-opera-chicago-lucia-di-lammermoor-may-19 <p>Join us on Saturday, May 19th, from 1 to 4 pm for Lyric Opera of Chicago&#39;s bel canto favorite, <em>Lucia di Lammermoor. </em>In Scotland,&nbsp;Lucia and Edgardo are breathlessly, desperately in love - but their two clans are bitter rivals. Lucia&rsquo;s villainous brother Enrico sets out to kill his young sister&rsquo;s romance. And he deploys every devious device he can muster, including lies, forgery, and, finally, the false revelation of Edgardo&rsquo;s infidelity.
