Welcome to Classical Pacific for December 7, 2017. I’m your host. John Zak.
In today’s broadcast, we’ll celebrate the inner child in all of us with a performance of “Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saëns.....see if you can guess which animals are represented in each piece of music.
We’ll also hear music of Stravinsky, Danzi, Beethoven, Haydn, as well as a beautiful selection from Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen.
You may be hearing some on-air promos regarding HPR’s search for a program host for HPR 2 and here’s why: After a great deal of consideration, I have decided to step down from my duties as host of Classical to pursue some exciting opportunities in production and in voice-over work . These new projects will likely take me to the Mainland and overseas for periods of time. But, Hawaii is home and I am delighted to announce that I will also be continuing my happy relationship with HPR in the coming year, with involvement in special projects, which I think you’ll enjoy. HPR has become a deep and meaningful part of my life and I am very proud of the work that is done here every day.
I will be on-air with Classical Pacific until mid December, and then, right after Christmas, meetings and planning sessions begin for the new projects. So, I happily say to my fellow HPR aficionados, “Aloha. A hui hou!”
