For lovers of great singing two extraordinary upcoming programs on WHRB. WHRB, one of the last remaining classical radio stations which has tributes to great singers from the past, will be having two wonderful vocal programs during the month of December dedicated to great singers of the past, Gerard Souzay and Richard Tauber.  For those who live in the  Boston/Cambridge area one can tune into WHRB, 95.3 FM, or for those outside of the radio listening  radius, one can listen via the internet at (WHRB.ORG). 

1) Monday, December 8, 8:30 - 10:00 P.M. 
90th Birthday Tribute to the great lyric baritone, Gérard Souzay (born, Dec. 8, 1918 - died, August 17, 2004): 
Various: Arie antiche; Baldwin (Lumen LP - Claves) 
Schumann: Dichterliebe, Op. 48; Cortot 
Liszt: songs; Baldwin (Ducretet-Thompson LP - Claves) 
This recording of Schumann Dichterliebe is one of the all time classic recordings of this beloved song cycle from a live performance in 1954 with Gerard Souzay and Alfred Cortot. 
2) Saturday, December 27: 4:00 - 6:00 P.M. - FRANZ LEHÁR SPECIAL 
Concert given June 5, 1946, of music of Franz Lehár conducted by the composer, who leads the Beromünster Radio Orchestra of Zürich in the last concert he and his dear colleague, tenor Richard Tauber, would share.  Both died in 1948. 
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  You can also check WHRB's complete listings at  WHRB  is one of the few remaining classical radio stations to play great  recordings from the past with some of the greatest singers of the 20th  century, which they also do after every MET broadcast on Saturday afternoons.  

Warm Regards to Opera Lovers,
