 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
The Humble Hurdy-Gurdy - The hum of droning strings and the dancing melodies that spin forth from its keyboard have, since the 11th century, made the hurdy-gurdy a popular folk instrument for both solo and ensemble playing. During the 18th century, it also became a popular chamber music instrument, with its rustic sound often meant to invoke a pastoral scene. This week on Harmonia, join us as we explore the art of the humble hurdy-gurdy!
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
It's the dead of winter, and many of us could use a little pick-me-up. Sunday Baroque will transport you to the warmth of Summer, complete with fireworks, flowers, and a lovely stroll through a poetic garden.
