You and your readers will be interested to know that on Tuesday Dec. 15 on my classical music program on WHPK-FM Chicago I will be broadcasting a recent interview I did with the exciting new upcoming Canadian pianist Luke Welch. 

Welch gained some attention with his personal article "My Life as a Black Classical Pianist" in which he chronicled the trials and tribulations  as well as the joys of being a Black classical musician which caused a sensation everywhere.

In the interview he discusses with me the impact his article caused along with his career and his inspirations among other topics.

Also on the show (which can be heard locally in the Chicago area on 88.5FM and livestream anywhere on the station's website on 12-3PM Central US time) will be Schubert's String Quintet D. 956,  Liszt's piano transcription of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantasique and Berlioz's Herold en Italie.
