New Weekend Programs on NCPR (5/9/03)

North Country Public Radio has added new programs to its spring and summer schedule.

American Routes, returns to the Saturday afternoon lineup, covering vast musical and cultural ground. Based in New Orleans, the program explores blues, jazz, roots rock, soul, zydeco and lots more. Host Nick Spitzer adds stories about the music and conversations with the music makers. The popular weekly two-hour show is heard Saturdays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Afropop Worldwide continues the Saturday afternoon musical odyssey. Hosted by one of Africa's best-loved broadcast personalities, Georges Collinet, Afropop Worldwide showcases emerging artists and acclaimed masters on the world music scene. The program sets the standard for both the curious and the connoisseur. Afropop Worldwide is heard Saturday afternoons at 3:00 pm.

During the summer of 2002, the top-ranked choirs from all over the world traveled to the U.S. for the Sixth World Symposium on Choral Music. Peabody Award-winning host and producer Brian Newhouse of Minnesota Public Radio brings listeners the very best from that gathering in World Choral Spectacular, a series of one-hour programs that showcase the pinnacle of choral singing. You'll hear ensembles such as Chanticleer, the Norwegian Soloists Choir, the Chamber Choir of Moscow and China's Red Leaf Children's Choir perform a diverse array of repertoire prepared to perfection. It's an Olympics of song, airing Sunday afternoons at 2 pm.
