Do you love classical music, but can’t sit through a whole 90-minute symphony from start to finish? This show is for you.
WTMD and Classical Revolution Baltimore are partnering to present Classical Music for People With Short Attention Spans: The Sequel. It’s the “Cliffs Notes” of classical music — all of the parts you know and love in 5 minutes or less each.
This show will take a look at how composers have incorporated different types of folk and popular music into classical pieces from the 1700’s through present day- featuring unexpected, cross-genre collaborations from the Baltimore music scene like beat-boxer Shodekeh Talifero, and more.
This show will be broadcast live on air, with a studio audience. Featured performers include the Baltimore vocal artist Shodekeh and more TBA!
