Alan Fletcher talks about Renee Fleming and Patrick Summers and plans for next year's opera program. We also catch up with harpist Nancy Allen, violinist Stefan Jackiw, and composer Christopher Theofanidis.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
