Ann Arbor Symphony Live on WKAR

Music Director Arie Lipsky and the A2SO

Last spring, WKAR brought you its first live broadcast of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra from the Michigan Theatre with an all-Brahms program.  Tonight at 8:00, 90.5 Classical kicks off an entire season of live Main Stage concerts from the A2SO.  It's an all-Beethoven show from A2's historic Hill Auditorium 

  this evening.  Not only that, but famed pianist Andre Watts joins Arie Lipsky and the A2SO for Beethoven's mighty "Emperor" Concerto.  It's an honor and a thrill for WKAR to launch a complete broadcast season of the A2SO...the first of what we hope will be many to come.
