Giving Thanks - Nowadays, ticket sales make up only a small percentage of revenue for any arts organization. Art has always been made possible through the generous support of donors. These patrons of the arts have come in many forms merchants, civic and religious institutions, and royalty. This week on Harmonia, we're giving thanks to patrons who supported music from the time of the troubadours through the 18th century.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
As you're washing and putting away the last of the dishes, storing the folding chairs and tables, and seeing off the last of the out-of-town Thanksgiving guests, Sunday Baroque will feature some "Greatest Hits" of the baroque era, to give you a happy soundtrack and an extra little boost of energy to complete your work.
