What's New: Classical Goes Pop


We’re featuring some covers and popular music with classical groups on this episode. While often associated with early rock and roll music, Jukeboxes and their popularity extends back much earlier, including swing, opera, and classical music! We’ll hear popular selections from David Bowie, the Beatles, and talk with Jethro Tull flutist Ian Anderson on today’s What’s New.

Featured on this show are the Ayoub Sisters: The Scottish-Egyptian multi-instrumentalist sisters Sarah and Laura Ayoub "are being heralded as the new sound and faces of the classical and crossover worlds." 

We'll also have the Carducci String Quartet, the Boreads of Montreal, the Ahn Trio, and the King's Singers!
