As the smell of cooking turkey and yummy pie fills your home, we’ll be featuring the loveliest classical music with special pieces by American composers; music inspired by America; autumn and harvest selections; and familiar favorites. This year you’ll hear impressions of America from Antonin Dvorak, as well as music for autumn by Amy Beach, Alexander Glazunov, and Antonio Vivaldi. Florence Price’s “Concerto in One Movement,” Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring,” and “We Gather Together” will round out the holiday celebration. These selections, along with many more classical treats, for your holiday table. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9!

Every Good Thing: Thanksgiving Day, 11:00am-12:00pm

Giving Thanks: Thanksgiving Evening: 5:00-7:00pm

“Giving Thanks” sounds the way Thanksgiving feels: inviting, warm, and festive, with no clichés about pilgrims and pumpkin pies.
