ABOUT THE PROGRAM
What would it be like to hear the Juilliard String Quartet perform in your living room? Or to invite violinist Joshua Bell over for brunch and Bach? Many people believe that chamber music is open only to connoisseurs, but each week Saint Paul Sunday's veteran host Bill McGlaughlin (pronounced "mih-*GLOCK*-lun") disproves this all-too-common view.
He opens the studio to the world's best classical artists—musicians of every conceivable style and mix—for both performance and conversation, giving listeners intimate access to how music is created at the highest level. It's all done with a great sense of exuberance and curiosity. The series' unique approach has won it hundreds of thousands of loyal listeners and, most recently, a 1995 George Foster Peabody Award.
Whether you're a long-time classical fan or a relative newcomer, this Web site is designed to broaden your own understanding of classical music. If you're new to the program, please check our list of broadcast stations for one in your area.
Saint Paul Sunday is made possible by a major grant from the General Mills Foundation with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
