For a variety of content we'd like to showcase

WRTI honors the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and joins with those in our community who remember them on Holocaust Remembrance Day, and throughout the week.

The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert this Sunday on WRTI 90.1 begins and ends with the colors of Hungarian folk music, and features the first Philadelphia performance of a concerto by Jennifer Higdon. Cristian Măcelaru conducts.

The music on WRTI is a passionate, powerful, and essential part of your life—that’s why we’re cutting the Spring Member Drive in half! What does that mean? All the Members in Half the Time equals more music and fewer interruptions—just the way you like it.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month, so WRTI is doing what we do best—spreading the love for this great art form! The Smithsonian Institution launched Jazz Appreciation Month in 2002 to herald and celebrate the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz.

The Carlock-Combet Duo, featuring violinist Giuillaume Combet and pianist Sandra Carlock, performed several French violin sonatas, including works by Poulenc, Franck, and Saint-Saëns, live from the WRTI Performance Studio on April 6, 2018. WRTI's Jack Moore was host.

The history of a musical era is as difficult to capture as the history of a house. If your house was built in, say, 1880, you might fill it with Victorian furniture and feel satisfied with getting it right. Your satisfaction may change, however, the deeper you looked.

Performance Today describes Jordan Dodson as “one of the top young guitarists of his generation.” Listen Jordan perform music of Domenico Scarlatti, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Nicole Murphy, and Roland Dyens, live from the WRTI 90.1 performance studio with host Debra Lew Harder.

Join us this Easter Sunday at 1 pm to hear a joyous concert broadcast of Handel's oratorio, Messiah, with a world-class roster of vocalists, a chorus of talented voices from throughout our region, and the musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra, all conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
