Thanksgiving Day Specials on Classic FM!

Tune in to WCNY Classic FM this Thanksgiving Day for the airing of three special sets from 2-6 p.m.!

2 p.m.: Every Good Thing
– This Thanksgiving, host Andrea Blain and classical music fans from around the country take time to give thanks and celebrate one of life’s most meaningful gifts: music. Audiences will hear listeners from across the U.S. share stories about their favorite classical music pieces.

3 p.m.: Harvest Season
– A special from Harmonia Early Music! Harmonia rings in the harvest season with a cornucopia of early music delights! We’ll hear merchant cries from long-ago London, witness the marriage of music and ritual, and dine at Johann Hermann Schein’s musical Banquet. For dessert: our featured release Amor Vincit Omnia or “Love Conquers All.” Hosted by early music scholar and performer, Angela Mariani.

4 p.m.: Giving Thanks: A Celebration of Fall, Food & Gratitude
– With music and stories for Thanksgiving, host John Birge creates a thoughtful, contemporary reflection on the meaning of the holiday. Classical music is the heart and soul of the original Giving Thanks. Between the music, no clichés about pilgrims and pumpkin pies. Instead, it’s a contemporary celebration of the spirit of Gratitude. Whether your listeners are early in the kitchen, on the road to a family gathering, or relaxing after the feast, Giving Thanks provides the perfect atmosphere for Thanksgiving: the warmth of great music, and truly memorable words.
