Classical Connections

Weekdays, 1 - 3 p.m. on KPAC 88.3 FM

Music unites us—it’s a language we all understand, regardless of our background. Whether you’re enjoying Mozart in the concert hall, or in the comfort of your own home, there’s a feeling we share when hearing great performances. The common denominator between us all is a curiosity for learning, and an appreciation of the dedication, craft, and artistry of musicians and composers. There’s also a story unique to our area, and Monday-Friday on Texas Public Radio’s KPAC 88.3 FM, we’re bringing it all together, featuring the best of classical music from around the world and great opportunities for listening right here in South Texas. “Classical Connections” is broadcast live and local from the KPAC studios, weekdays from 1-3 p.m. Meet us in this space on the radio to hear the greatest music of all time, and voices from our community that bring context to the classics.

Composer Matthew Dunne and the Cavatina Duo visited with Barry Brake in the KPAC studios on Friday, and shared some brand new music at the same time.

Dunne’s new work for guitar and flute, “Three Artisans,” was written in tribute to Tal Perkes, former Principal Flute of the San Antonio Symphony, who died too young in 2012, at age 51.
