From the majesty of Baroque and Classical era masterpieces to the daring sounds of our own time, orchestral music is one of the supreme artistic traditions of Western culture. Veteran anchor Melissa Long, recently retired from Fort Wayne ABC affiliate WPTA, will lead seasoned concert-goers and those just discovering the joys of classical music through a program that explores great orchestral favorites.
