As you gather with friends and family to give thanks, we want you to have one less thing to worry about. So we've teamed up with our friends at 'The Splendid Table' to put together the perfect playlist of classical music for your Thanksgiving get-together.
This Thanksgiving, host Andrea Blain and classical music fans from around the country take time to give thanks and celebrate one of life's most meaningful gifts: music. Audiences will hear listeners from across the U.S. share stories about their favorite classical music pieces.
Autumn is in the air. We've put together a playlist of classical music to accompany this beautiful time, when the weather starts to chill and the leaves begin to turn. Listen now, and enjoy the sounds of a colorful season.
Andrea Blain celebrates music inspired by Autumn with added insight from Peter Moe, Director of Operations and Research at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Peter joins to talk about what actually happens in the autumn; specifically, why do the leaves burst into beauty? Then, hear the music that has burst forth from that.
The American holiday of Thanksgiving is Thursday, Nov. 26. Many cultures have a Thanksgiving, day of gratitude or harvest festival, adding their own elements of food, music and other traditions to the celebrations. This week on Learning to Listen, we'll hear music written for giving thanks.
