Gregg Whiteside

WRTI's Gregg Whiteside is once again traveling across the globe with The Philadelphia Orchestra—this year, on their tour of Israel and Europe with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. WRTI 90.1 will broadcast and stream four concerts from the tour with a one-hour delay.

WRTI 90.1 made history when I traveled halfway around the world in May of 2016 to join the Philadelphia Orchestra in Hong Kong, a major stop on the Orchestra’s Asia tour.

Here's a delicious addition to your weekday mornings! By popular demand, I will now bring you music by Johann Sebastian Bach every weekday at 8:06 AM on WRTI 90.1.

The Philadelphia Eagles, my childhood team, last went to the Super Bowl in 2005—just months after my arrival in Philadelphia, after twenty years in New York City. My timing was amazing; four years later the Phillies would win the World Series.

It's so easy to find oneself attracted to the music of Franz Schubert. His unmatched gift for lyricism makes him so approachable, so comprehensible; and we feel ourselves being pulled into his musical world—in my case, at a very early age.
