A new program airs Sunday nights on WBAA Classical: What's New. Host John Clare features new music, new releases, and interesting guests. Hear a special preview of this week's What's New, and let us know what you think.

Last month, violinist Madeline Adkins assumed her new post as Concertmaster of the Utah Symphony. Previously, Adkins was the Associate Concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She appeared semi-annually as soloist with the BSO, and performed over 25 works with the orchestra including pieces of Beethoven, Sarasate, Vaughan Williams, Bach, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Prokofiev, Vivaldi, Bruch, Saint-Saens, and Arvo Pärt.  She has also been the concertmaster of the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra since 2008. We'll feature her latest release of Mendelssohn violin works on this episode!

Hear more Sunday night at 10pm on WBAA Classical on 101.3FM and WBAA.org! And again Tuesdays at 8pm right after Exploring Music on WBAA Classical!
