The Verge

NEW TIME on our News/Classical FM & HD1 channel! Now The Verge starts at 6pm CT.

Find out what you'll hear each week on The Verge: music that hates to be classified, music that crosses boundaries, and new music by 20th and 21st Century composers.


 Sunday evening September 6 from 7:00 to 9:00 CT, on The Verge:

Music for the Labor Day weekend. Composer Kevin Puts finds inspiration in modern technology with his piece "Network," William Fletcher writes about a taxi driver, Mark O'Connor writes an agricultural-themed work, meanwhile Elvis Costello and the Brodsky String Quartet collaborate on a work inspired by the blue collar.

In addition to works about and for work, just some music about nature, where many people spend time over the long weekend.


  Sunday evening September 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 CT, on The Verge:

Enjoy an ecclectic mix of music by Gabriel Kahane, who easily writes music between sounds of pop, classical and singer/songwriter. Plus we'll hear work for the theremin and some collaborations between musicians that would usually be categorized as either classical or pop, but who work together to create something truly unique.

Or, try watching a 360 video recorded with our NET team, violinist Hyeyung Yoon and dancer Hye-Won Hwang. Originating from the Korean heritage of both performers, Hye-Won adapts the traditional Korean dance known as Salp’uri to Hyeyung’s performance of Bach’s Adagio from Sonata No. 1 in G minor. You can see that on Youtube by clicking here.
