TV FiOs

sixteen years ago, some 300 people made their way to the Armory in Concord, massachusetts, for the chance to get a free appraisal of their antiques or collectibles and for the off-chance of appearing on a brand-new, WGBH-produced tv series: Antiques Roadshow. the combination of history lesson, treasure hunt and human drama quickly proved irresistible to viewers nationwide. today, Antiques Roadshow is PBs’s top-rated prime-time series and the longest-running appraisal show on American television. “there’s no better way to enter the past than through the present,” says WGBH’s Marsha Bemko, executive producer for the series. “every object has a story to tell, and that makes for great television.” the series has opened the doors of the rarified world of antiques and collectibles to millions of Americans. it’s also turned Roadshow events into some of the hottest tickets in cities from coast to coast. this month, we’re proud to present two opportunities to watch Roadshow—Roadshow’s visit to el Paso, texas, and a one-hour special called Junk in the Trunk—plus two chances to attend Roadshow’s much-anticipated Boston appraisal event (saturday, June 9, at the Boston Convention & exhibition Center). “Boston is the first stop in our season 17 tour,” says marsha. “We’re thrilled to return home to where it all started, and to give area fans a chance to participate firsthand.” You can apply online or by postcard to be entered into a random drawing for a pair of tickets (deadline: April 16). Or tune in Junk in the Trunk for the opportunity to secure a guaranteed ticket (see page 10 for details). these days, the learning continues long after each episode. the Roadshow team has assembled an educationally rich, searchable archive of information about all things antiques, available at your fingertips through pbs.org/antiques. there you’ll also find Web-exclusive video appraisals and a habitforming game called “What’s it Worth?” Can’t get enough? Check out our iPhone and iPad app games, available through itunes. We’re grateful to our millions of Antiques Roadshow fans, and to the thousands of people who each year bring their treasures, hopes, and stories to our Roadshow events. But even more, we’re grateful to our WGBH members. Your generous support helped launch the series and has kept it going strong…and that’s priceless.

Tune in throughout March for a wide range of TV programs, including some very special member favorites! Below are just a few of the highlights. For your favorites that have not been scheduled as of press time, check wgbh.org/schedule for broadcast times.

Big Band Vocalists Take a trip back to the “crooners” and “canaries” of the ’40s, including the greatest vocalists of the period. The program features the legendary artists—and their timeless hits—including Louis Armstrong (“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”), Doris Day (“It’s Magic”), Peggy Lee with The Benny Goodman Orchestra (“Why Don’t You Do Right”), Jo Stafford & The Pied Pipers with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra (“It Started All over Again”) and many more favorites from the World War II era. Nick Clooney and Peter Marshall host. Sat, 3/3 at 7pm on WGBH 2

Dr. Wayne Dyer: Wishes Fulfilled In his newest PBS special, best-selling author and acclaimed teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer presents his “Wishes Fulfilled” foundations: five steps to living from your “highest self” in order to attain your deepest desires. Using his trademark humor, combined with material from some 20th-century American “new thought” philosophers, Dyer outlines a program for mastering the tools necessary for living a profoundly extraordinary life, showing viewers how to create new thought patterns while overcoming unproductive and recurring habits.

A Pandora’s Box?

the genetic revolution is upon us, and advancing every day. But what will it mean when many can afford to have the information in their dnA read, stored and available for analysis?

in danville, California, Lee Gorewitz wanders day after day on a soul-searching odyssey through her Alzheimer’s care unit. Confined by the limits of her physical boundaries, she scavenges for reminders of her old identity in the outside world. Yet her search is for more than a word, or a memory or a familiar face. it is a quest for understanding. Although the cognitive deterioration due to Alzheimer’s is devastating, Gorewitz embodies the resiliency of the human spirit. Here is the Alzheimer’s odyssey of a woman who will not let us forget her— even as she struggles to remember herself.

Paralympics 2012

every two years, the world’s top athletes gather to compete in Games that are the toughest in the world—and unknown to many Americans: the Paralympics. Paralympians battle for the same top medals as Olympic athletes, in the same stadiums, with the same flaming torch. they are powerful, highly trained, proud to represent their countries…and physically disabled. WGBH’s Medal Quest presents in-depth portraits of America’s elite Paralympic athletes. Over seven months leading up to the August 29 start of the London Paralympic Games, the Web series will look at Paralympic history and great Paralympians, profile the next generation of champions and present the newest group to join the Paralympic movement: wounded “warrior athletes” from the iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Radio Spotlight Online with Classical New England Classical New England is expanding its reach, not just geographically (with its recently launched service to listeners in the Providence, RI, area) but through an enhanced website— classicalnewengland.org—designed to give you more of what you love: all things classical. The man behind much of this effort is Brian McCreath, host of The Bach Hour (Sundays 6am and 5pm) and the primary contributor to Classical New England Journal, your source on the radio and online for classical music news and commentary. WGBH’s Matt Roy recently talked with McCreath about the website, his background and Boston’s classical music scene.

Q A

What will people find on classicalnewengland.org? We have a live stream of the radio station and multiple channels, including BSO Radio, Boston Early Music and Kids Classical. The live stream is attracting a lot of listeners and we want to be there for them with new and engaging things to read, watch and listen to. Writing more and producing more multimedia content for the Web is part of the plan.

Q A

What are some of the Web features you create and are excited about? I focus on things that we probably wouldn’t otherwise be able to prominently feature on air. I preview events and interview composers and performers. Last fall, I spoke with Boston Globe critic Jeremy Eichler for a season preview. We took a comprehensive look at the highlights, and for the first time gave listeners a resource to plan long term. On the radio, we usually call attention to something just days before it happens. I also report on issues impacting the classical music community for Classical New England Journal and, through conversations with experts, offer analysis. During my conversation with Eichler, for example, we spent a lot of time talking about James Levine, his impact on the Boston Symphony Orchestra and how the BSO is going to move forward without him. Only a small part of that made it on the radio.

Q A

What sparked your love of classical music? It wasn’t an early fascination of mine; it grew organically. In the sixth grade, I picked up the trumpet and joined the band, mostly because it was a social thing to do. But I was soon drawn to

the music. I grew up in Texas and my parents subscribed to the orchestra. There was a guy playing a trumpet concerto, and my parents thought it would be fun if I went. I vividly remember it.

Q A

You eventually made it on stage as a performer. What was that like? I decided in the middle of college to pursue performing as a career. I came to Boston for my master’s degree and left even before graduation to take a job with an orchestra. I ended up playing professionally for several years, and there was a lot of personal satisfaction in performing. But as I got older I began to feel like there were certain other things that I wanted to do.

been written. That sounds hyperbolic, but it’s true. That we’re willing to deal in this pretty serious form of music says something about WGBH. We’re trying to cover every end of the classical spectrum.

Q A

Is that what led you to radio?

It is. I would talk to audience members after concerts and have these great conversations. They were curious about the inner workings of music and performance, and it was fun to help them understand both in new ways. I realized I really enjoyed connecting people to the music and decided radio was the best outlet to do that.

Q A

How does your performing background inform your current role? My experiences both as a performer and as someone who has listened for decades to other performers are something I draw on all the time. Having an academic knowledge about dates, timelines and stylistic periods is helpful, but there’s another dimension as well. It’s about hearing music, hearing what a performer is doing, and appreciating how he or she is communicating with you through music.

Q A

You host The Bach Hour. Why is Boston so fond of Bach? It’s hard to say exactly why, but Boston is a great Bach town. This city embraces Bach in a knowledgeable and deeply involved way. And The Bach Hour, in continuing a long-established tradition that I inherited from previous hosts, is evidence of this strong connection. (Learn more about why Boston loves Bach on page 24.)

Q A

What interests you about Bach? If you ask musicians, composers, performers, musicologists—everybody—9 times out of 10 they will say that Bach’s cantatas, as a single body of work, are the greatest music that has ever

Q A

What is the state of Boston’s classical music scene? The closure of Opera Boston was a huge blow and very unexpected. But I don’t believe it indicates something about the overall health of classical music. I think this was specific to Opera Boston. And it doesn’t really affect my belief that the arts and classical music in Boston and New England are actually pretty healthy.

Q A

What are some of the Boston classical music highlights we should look for this spring? Esa-Pekka Salonen is conducting the BSO in April (April 12–14). He led the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 20 years and took what was already a pretty good orchestra and made it great. He’s not a regular here, so it’s a rare chance to see a really top-level conductor/ composer who is bringing his own music. There also is a pairing of concerts that is completely serendipitous. The Handel and Haydn Society is doing the St. Matthew Passion by Bach (March 30, April 1). That, by itself, is an event. Then, on April 6, Boston Modern Orchestra Project is performing Water Passion after St. Matthew, a modern work by Chinese composer Tan Dun, who was responsible for the music in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The two performances represent a terrific opportunity for Boston to hear one of the greatest works ever written and a modern piece inspired by it.

Classical New England Happy Birthday, Bach! By Benjamin K. Roe Managing Director of Classical Services

Bach opens a vista to the universe. After experiencing him, people feel there is meaning to life after all. —Helmut Wacha

Perhaps you’ve noticed that the world of classical music is filled with milestones: premieres, passings, debuts, and most especially, birthday anniversaries. Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz almost single-handedly established December 16 (Beethoven’s Birthday) as an unofficial holiday, with Schroeder-the-toy-piano-virtuoso as Celebrator-in-Chief. The Amadeus effect similarly made January 27th (Mozart’s Birthday) a redletter day on the classical music calendar. And on March 21 we celebrate the birthday of the man fellow composer Max Reger described as “the beginning and end of all music”: Johann Sebastian Bach. Universal, to be sure, but with a very special resonance in the Hub of the Universe. Boston, after all, is where the Handel and Haydn Society presented the American premiere of the St. Matthew Passion in 1879—and where Harry Christophers and company will again present Bach’s monumental work later this month. From his perch at Harvard University, Christoph Wolff is arguably the world’s foremost scholar on the music, life and times of Bach. The Cantata Singers were founded in 1964

with the express purpose of performing the neglected works of Bach. Under the musical direction of Bálint Karosi, winner of the 16th International Bach Competition in Leipzig, Germany, Boston’s First Lutheran Church will present a special Bach Birthday program on March 24 with the Boston chapter of the American Guild of Organists. And, lest we forget, presenting—and broadcasting!—the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach has been a Boston tradition for more than 40 years, thanks to the pioneering efforts of the late conductor Craig Smith, who founded the Emmanuel Music ensemble to perform the complete cycle of Bach’s 200-plus cantatas in the liturgical setting and calendar for which they were written. And at virtually the same time WGBH launched a Sunday morning tradition of broadcasting Bach cantatas on Morning pro musica. In 2012, both traditions are going strong. Now under the dynamic leadership of Ryan Turner, Emmanuel Music has begun its third Bachcantata cycle, the core of an ambitious music series that ranges from baroque to contemporary in large and small ensembles throughout the week. And on Classical New England, we provide you an entire Sunday morning of inspiring and beautiful music written from Bach’s time and before. The Bach Hour with Brian McCreath offers you a weekly gateway into the world of Bach’s sacred and secular works, followed by Baroque in Boston with Laura Carlo, which journeys into the richness of Boston’s early music scene. Listen to both programs all month long for celebrations and explorations of the world of Bach, and hopefully you’ll find the same inspirations as did Claude Debussy: “…on each page we discover things which we thought were born only yesterday, from delightful arabesques to an overflowing of religious feeling greater than anything we have since discovered. And in his works we will search in vain for anything the least lacking in good taste.”

Taking a STEP in the Right Direction By Cheryl Willoughby Classical New England Music Director

March is Music in Our Schools Month. In 1973, a group of music education professionals created the designation to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of making high-quality music education available to every student in this country’s public school system. Four decades later we now know the rest of the story, with funding cuts indiscriminately diminishing or eliminating public school music programs nationwide. In response, a growing number of grassroots organizations have organized to bridge that gap by providing school-age children with musical instruments, structured group and individual practice sessions, private lessons and public performance opportunities. Boston’s Project STEP (String Training and Education Program) is one of those organizations, now entering its 30th year of making a musical difference in our community. The initiative began in 1982 when the Boston Symphony Orchestra decided to find a way to address the underrepresentation of African American and Latino musicians in classical symphony orchestras. The basic plan is simple: identify and train minority students who do not have ready access to the best available training. You may be familiar with the concept. It’s the same idea behind Venezuela’s El Sistema youth music program and the success of its most famous graduate, Los Angeles Philharmonic director Gustavo Dudamel. He became involved with the organization as a violinist at age 10, later rising as a worldwide El Sistema ambassador through his work leading the renowned Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. Closer to home, the New England Conservatory’s Abreu Fellowship program (named for El Sistema founder José Antonio Abreu) is designed either to involve its participants in the many El Sistema-inspired programs that have begun taking firm root in the US—or to start their own. Apart from its minority-only focus, another way that Project STEP differs from other similar organizations is that its doors are only open to string

Lunch with Café Europa By Alan McLellan Classical New England Program Host

Classical New England. We’ve now had some time to settle in with our new moniker, and you’ve heard what that name has come to mean: more of the music, voices and performances that define the unique classical music fabric of our part of the world. In the past few months we’ve brought you live concert broadcasts from Jordan Hall, Sanders Theatre and the newest hall in our concert landscape: the stunning, cube-shaped Calderwood Performance Hall at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. But while we all have the opportunity to experience music in some amazing local concert spaces, we want to bring you to the world’s great concert spaces. That’s why I now bring you Café Europa, a

players. Why no brass, percussion or reeds? It comes down to simple supply and demand: since stringed instruments make up the largest sections of orchestras, Project STEP organizers reason that focusing their efforts on that area of the orchestra will provide the greatest potential opportunity for aspiring young musicians. The sheer quantity of talented, motivated young performers in our region keeps Project STEP very busy. Executive director Mary Jaffee says the organization’s biggest challenge is meeting the demand to provide the program’s full 12 years of training to all of the talented music students who qualify. It’s important work, she emphasizes, because “when young musicians begin their professional careers they quickly discover it’s a very competitive world. There are maybe 800 qualified candidates for every open string position in a professional orchestra.” Not every Project STEP graduate will become a professional musician, but Jaffee says the value of the program’s training goes well beyond a purely musical application: “We want to see students use music as a trajectory to get involved in other professions. They learn so many life skills when they’re here, such as perseverance and discipline. They really pick up good work habits. That has a direct impact on their academic performance and their careers later in life.” And the program’s success rate is commendable, with every graduate in the program continuing their education at college or conservatory. This March, Classical New England encourages you to continue supporting and advocating for the young musicians in your own life—you never know who will be the next Gustavo Dudamel or José Antonio Abreu!

weekday lunchtime concert feature from Europe. These performances, usually having taken place in just the previous few weeks, give us a window in on the great orchestras and performers of Germany, the UK, France, Finland and the rest of Europe. In March, I’m looking forward to a few performances in particular. During the week of March 19, we’ll celebrate Johann Sebastian Bach; one artist we’ll feature is pianist Nicholas Angelich in the composer’s English Suite No. 2 as performed last summer during the Verbier Festival in Switzerland. Also in March, we’ll celebrate Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival with Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, featuring the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and conductor David Robertson; and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17 with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Claudio Abbado. So join us as we reach beyond New England, both on location and on the radio during Café Europa! Schedules, program info, playlists: classicalnewengland.org 25


89.7 WGBH, Boston Public radio The Political View By Phil redo, managing director 89.7 WGBH, Boston Public radio

toward the end of 2011, as the election cycle morphed from neverending punditry into actual vote counting, WGBH radio wrestled with how we might best offer thoughtful, unique and fresh coverage. more than the presidential contest, 2012 also will feature a Us senate race in massachusetts with national interest, and new contests within redrawn congressional districts—electoral stakes that will influence voter interest and turnout. so-called “horse race” coverage, while often entertaining, is rarely illuminating. so, WGBH has decided to place a greater emphasis on specific issues and to examine motivations driving the issues, including the language used by the media, voters and candidates. As an example, we spent 10 mornings, beginning the day of the iowa Caucuses, interviewing leading local and national thinkers. We asked Greg Goodale of northeastern University to review some of the language of the campaign and the significance of specific words and phrases. We discussed the impact of religion with trinity College professor mark silk, and emory University professor drew Westen told us about the psychology involved in motivating people to vote.

As always, we hoped to use storytelling to get to the heart of a subject and we returned to the rich WGBH Archives on January 10 to explore the history of the new Hampshire primary. We shared with our listeners the voices of our political past—tennessee senator estes Kefauver and Presidents Harry s. truman, John F. Kennedy and George H.W. Bush— putting into historical context results that were only hours away. Among the more interesting experiments we tried was simulcasting the efforts of our colleagues: first from iowa on Caucus night with iowa Public radio and a week later with coverage from new Hampshire Public radio. these two outstanding statewide networks offered our own listeners a team of reporters well versed in the subtleties of their respective states. We are proud to have offered their talents and we hope, if you heard it, you agree their insight and local knowledge made for richer coverage. As the calendar moves along, we will look for equivalent opportunities. stay tuned. it should be quite a year!

WCAI, Cape and Islands NPR Station WCAI’s A Life Remembered

Everyone’s life has a story and often that story is summed up in a few sentences in an obituary buried at the back of the newspaper. But there is a lot more worth knowing about people, and WCAI reporter Sean Corcoran recently launched A Life Remembered to present more detailed portraits of local community members who have passed away and to celebrate individuals whose lives made an impact on their family and neighbors. The new series premiered in January and airs the first Monday of each month during Morning Edition and All Things Considered on WCAI. The first profile remembers Alice Lopez, 49, the Mashpee tribe’s housing director who envisioned an affordable housing community called “Wampanoag Village,” and secured enough grant money to buy the wooded acreage in Mashpee where 52 homes will be built. Lopez was a passionate advocate for the Cape’s often overlooked homeless population and wanted to provide a permanent home for tribe members who now move from house to house, sleeping on couches and in tents in people’s yards.

Corcoran interviewed Lopez’s mother, her sister, and her friend and fellow tribe member, Myrna Nuey. You hear the emotion in Nuey’s voice when she talks about Lopez. “She was the essence of what I call a ‘native woman.’ The purity that she had in her heart for her people goes beyond words and goes beyond anyone’s expectations of what a native woman is all about,” Nuey says, explaining Lopez’s lifelong pride in her heritage and culture. “To come into her presence and be with her often was an honor.” If you missed the January or February edition of A Life Remembered, listen online at capeandislands.org. And you’re invited to suggest people you may know who have recently died and have a story to be told. Send suggestions to Sean at sean.corcoran@wgbh.org.
