WRTI Spotlight

For a variety of content we'd like to showcase

Jan Regan/The Philadelphia Orchestra

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.

Works by J.S. Bach, Gabriel Fauré, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Johann Nepomuk Hummel are on the program for the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia's broadcast on WRTI 90.1, Sunday, May 20th from 5 to 6 pm. 

Musicians who are all faculty members of the Curtis Institute of Music's Summerfest performed Mendelssohn’s Trio in D minor for flute, cello, and piano, .live on WRTI 90.1 on May 16, 2018. Jack Moore hosted the broadcast.

Andrew Eccles

Delaware Theatre Company

You know Freda Payne's voice from the smash hit “Band of Gold,” which topped the pop charts here and in the U.K. in 1970. During her long career, she has also made appearances on TV and in film. And now, for the third time, she's portraying Ella Fitzgerald onstage in Ella: First Lady of Song at Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington.

Amanda Stevenson

Susanna-Drescher

Hailed as “radiant” by The New York Times and “ethereal" by Newsweek Polska, the award-winning early music ensemble Peregrina, from Basel, Switzerland, will perform on WRTI in advance of upcoming concerts with Piffaro, the Renaissance Band.

Join us Sunday from 4 to 6 pm for another virtuoso program of orchestral works from the extraordinary group of young instrumentalists making up one of the nation’s premier organizations for young musicians, the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra.
