Saturday afternoon programming changes on Classical IPR

Jul 4, 2019

Two new programs are coming to Saturday afternoons on Classical IPR.

Starting Saturday, July 6, listen to Concierto with Frank Dominguez at 1 p.m., followed by What's New with John Clare at 3 p.m. From the Top will remain unchanged at 5 p.m.

These new programs will air on Saturday afternoons until the live Metropolitan Opera radio broadcasts resume this December. 

Based on feedback from listener surveys and focus groups, we will now play full-length operas on Saturday afternoons only during the live Metropolitan Opera season every year from December to May. In the Met's off-season, we will broadcast other programs. 

We thank our listeners for their feedback, and we welcome your continued comments about our programming. Email IPR's music director Amanda Sewell at or call her at (231) 276-4443.
