June Goldsmith on Dvorak

June Goldsmith is a regular visitor to the show. I love her enthusiasm for music and the way she has of making it so accessible, of providing a new context for listening, for those of us who don't have a deep musical education.  I also love June's great sense of humor and her zest for life.

Recently June was in Ottawa as part of the Chamber Music Fest where she did an interview with violinist James Ehnes which you can hear on line.

This Sunday June will be back on NXNW to talk about and play some of the music of Dvorak. She says he was one of the masters of melody.
And June and I will be on stage for another of the Why Music Works events in Kelowna on Sunday October 3 as part of the celebrations for the CBC expansion there. Watch for details soon on the event.
