Leonard Slatkin and Seong-Jin Cho perform Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto July 21, and most people may not know that conductor Leonard Slatkin has been an occasional classical music DJ since 1968! Pianist Arie Vardi also talks about his all-Bach program where four nine-foot Steinway grands and an orchestra will all be onstage at Harris Hall July 20!

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.
