Nov 24, 2015

The Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University will join with WBJC 91.5 FM, Maryland’s Classical Music Station, to create a new broadcast series of faculty and student performances recorded live during the 2015-16 concert season. “Peabody Today” will launch this Saturday, November 28, with a recent performance of the Peabody Singers under the direction of Edward Polochick, which will air in its entirety on WBJC program director Jonathan Palevsky’s “Music in Maryland” program.

“WBJC is such an important voice in this community, and it provides the perfect platform to showcase the performances of our world-class faculty artists and gifted student musicians that we have right here in Baltimore,” notes Fred Bronstein, dean of the Peabody Institute. “We are proud to partner with WBJC in order to bring these exciting live performances to a wider audience across the region.”

The Peabody Singers program to be broadcast beginning at 6:00 pm on Saturday includes Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Vesperae solennes de confessore, K.339, and Ave Verum Corpus, K.618; and the Missa brevis of Zoltán Kodály. Maestro Polochick’s pre-concert conversation with Mr. Palevsky about the works will also be included in the broadcast.

Additional Peabody concerts to be broadcast on WBJC this season include performances by the Peabody Symphony Orchestra, the Peabody Renaissance Ensemble, and Peabody faculty members featured as part of the Sylvia Adalman Chamber Series.

About the Peabody Institute

Located in the heart of Baltimore’s Mount Vernon Cultural District, the Peabody Institute was founded in 1857 as America’s first academy of music by philanthropist George Peabody. Today, Peabody boasts a preeminent faculty, a nurturing, collaborative learning environment, and the academic resources of one of the nation’s leading universities, Johns Hopkins, with which Peabody affiliated in 1977. Through its degree-granting Conservatory and its community-based Preparatory music and dance school, Peabody trains musicians and dancers of every age and at every level, from small children to seasoned professionals, from dedicated amateurs to winners of international competitions. Among the Conservatory’s most illustrious alumni are pianist Andre Watts, vocalists James Morris and Richard Cassilly of the Metropolitan Opera, jazz bassist Joe Byrd, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Dominick Argento. Each year, Peabody stages nearly 1,000 concerts and performances, ranging from classical to contemporary to jazz, many of them free — a testament to the vision of George Peabody.
