Philadelphia Music Makers
The show aired from September, 2014 to April, 2015
The musicians were your hosts for Philadelphia Music Makers, a unique 31-episode series that brought you up close to instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers throughout the Philadelphia region. It aired on WRTI between September, 2014 and April, 2015.
Each one-hour show featured a classical or jazz artist - a variety of the area's best and brightest, emerging and well-established musicians, performing their favorite pieces and sharing personal and professional stories.
Classical episodes aired on Sundays at 5 pm; jazz episodes aired on Sundays at 6 pm.
Philadelphia Music Makers was co-produced by Jim Cotter and Eric Brannon. Jane Kelly was executive producer.
The series was made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the generosity of an anonymous WRTI Leadership Circle member, with additional support from WRTI members.
