VPR Classical Comes to Addison County June 8th

We'll "flip the switch" for VPR Classical in Addison County at 90.1 FM next Tuesday, June 8th, at 9 a.m., and we want you to be part of the celebration! Join us for a community breakfast celebration at the Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury College, featuring a live performance by pianist Annemieke Spoelstra.

The celebration begins at 8:30 a.m. It's free, but reservations are required. Please call us at 1-800-639-2192 to reserve your spot.

The new station will provide a strong signal to a population of more than 83,000 covering most of Addison County, including Salisbury, Cornwall, Shoreham, Addison, New Haven, Vergennes, south to Brandon, and including some towns across Lake Champlain in New York.

The VPR Classical launch aside, June 8, 2010 is already a big day here: we're celebrating the bicentennial birthday year of two major classical composers, Robert Schumann and Frederic Chopin. In addition to Annemieke Spoelstra's performance, we'll feature the music of both composers throughout the day, as well local pianists sharing their insights into the legacies and personal meaning of Schumann and Chopin's music.

We are so happy to welcome Addison County listeners to the VPR Classical family. I hope you will join us or tune in next Tuesday!
