10 a.m.: Giving Thanks
The two-hour program offers a contemporary celebration of gratitude, with classical music and stories of Thanksgiving. Great American writers will grace us this Thanksgiving 2019. Giving Thanks remembers poet Mary Oliver as she reads poems of gratitude and nature. Walt Whitman stops by to celebrate Thanksgiving and his 200th birthday, and we’ll set a place at the table for New Yorker writer, best-selling author, humorist and turkey aficionado Adam Gopnik.
12 noon: Every Good Thing
Host Andrea Blain and classical music fans from around the country take time to give thanks and celebrate one of life’s most meaningful gifts: music. Audiences will hear listeners from across the U.S. share stories about their favorite classical music pieces.
1 p.m.: Thanksgiving with the American Sound: By and By
Since America’s first Thanksgiving, journeying has been one of Thanksgiving’s key ingredients. Whether crisscrossing the country on a series of airplanes, or driving to a Thanksgiving destination, there’s always a sense of leaving where you are in joyful anticipation of gathering wherever those you love may be. Enjoy an hour of music for Thanksgiving journeying and gathering, hosted by Jennifer Hambrick.
