A program guide for members of Prairie Public Broadcasting October 2012

At Home in Russia, At Home on the Prairie

What causes a region, a place, to imprint itself upon the people who are born and live there? What is the connection between landscape and memory? What is forgotten, and what is remembered? At Home in Russia, At Home on the Prairie shows how a territory can endure in the minds of the descendants of those inhabitants after years, even after generations, have passed. Tune in Wednesday, October 17, at 7:00 p.m. for this new production from Prairie Public’s Germans from Russia series of documentaries.

World-renowned artist will be the star of the upcoming radio membership drive Scott Prebys, host of radio’s Prebys on Classics, can add another accomplishment to his professional career—an interview with violinist Angele Dubeau. He’ll pair the interview with Dubeau’s new CD titled A Time for Us (Silence, on joue!), for a classical music treat that is sure to be a ‘thank-you gift’ hit during the October membership drive. Dubeau is regarded as one of Canada’s most prominent solo classical performing artists, in addition to leading the popular chamber group La Pietà. Her career is impressive: only a few other classical soloists have a certified Gold record for 50,000 albums sold in a given year. Prebys talked with Dubeau while she was at Carnegie Hall, one of many orchestra halls she has played in around the world. “I had great fun visiting with Angele,” said Prebys. “She’s a clever individual with a knack for programming great repertoire for La Pietà. I think our audience will enjoy her musical and personal insights.”
