This is the first day of HPR's Spring Drive, a time for us to encourage listeners to become members of HPR. On the Clasical side of the station this Spring, we took a poll to find out the favorite performers of you the listeners. We're going to feature performeer number 10 on the first day of the drive, and will continue to feature one artist each day, ending with number one on the final day of the drive. 

  The HPR Fund Drive begins tomorrow, so I thought I'd play you some newly arrived CDs before we dive into the fray. You'll hear performances by Rupert Boyd; Tenet; Marcy Rosen and Susan Walters; Jennifer Koh and Jaime Laredo; ACRONYM; and Marc Pontius. 

Don't worry, we'll still be playing music during the Fund Drive. You'll also want to tune in to learn who your listener-chosen Classical Stars turn out to be. We'll unveil one each day, starting from Number 10. 

Wednesday the Spring Fund Drive on HPR begins. Twice a year we do a ten-day membership drive to ensure that HPR can continue bringing you the great proramming that you've come to expect. If you're a regular listener and a member, mahalo for your support. If you're a regular listened, but haven't yet joined us, we'd love to have you join us.

We have two days of regular programming before the drive begins. Today, Sharene Taba is hosting, as she has been for a past couple of months on Mondays. I'll be back on Tuesday and for the rest of the week. 

It's the  88th day of the year! Join me to celebrate World Piano Day. You'll hear from some great pianists, playing the instrument in some of its versatile roles - soloist, ensemble player, accompanist.

  As Women's History month nears its end, I choose to play works by women composers throughout the history of Classical Music. I'm choosing from works by Lili Boulanger, Clara Wieck Schumann, Francesca Caccini, Barbara Strozzi, Hildegard von Bingen, Rebecca Clarke, Anne Dudley, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Teresa Carreño, Germaine Tailleferre, Amy Beach, Cecile Chaminade, Elizabeth Maconchy and Jacquet de la Guerre. If you listen to this program regularly, you may have heard works by some of these composers already. 

It's Women's History Month, so I've chosen a second day of performances led by women conductors. You'll hear from Alondra de al Parra, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, Jane Glover, Anne-Sophie Mutter, and Gisèle Ben-Dor.

  As part of women's history month, I'm focusing on women conductors today, and possibly next Tuesday. Although I include women in my general output for Classical Pacific, it's wonderful to be able to spend an entire program on them alone. Some of today's featured conductors will be Marin Alsop, Emmanuelle Haïm, Sarah Hicks, JoAnn Falletta, and Eve Queler.

 A listener who enjoys sharing the program with her grandson asked if I might do a program on animals. So, here it is. I haven't focused on animals as an inspiration for composers for a while. You'll hear music by Schubert, Telemann, Vivaldi, Stravinsky, Handel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, and possibly more.

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Join me for a final day of presenting works of Classical music with interesting or unusual names, which sometimes come from the composer, sometimes the publisher, and sometimes from classical fans. You'll hear music by Mozart, Birtwistle, Shostakovich, Dvorák, Anton Rubinstein, Chopin, Beethoven, Vivaldi and Mendelssohn.

  Many works of Classical Music have associated names beyond just what type of pieces they are, and it can be interesting to see how those names came about. For a second day, I'm playing works with interesting titles or nicknames, and I'll give you a little information on them that might be useful as a conversation starter! By the way, Happy Pi Day.

Today on Classical Pacific, musical works identified with nicknames or memorable titles. Sometimes the title identifies the intent of the composer, and/or is named by the composer. Sometimes the work gains a nickname that the composer had nothing to do with. From Jokes to Raindrops to Spinning, the possibilities are endless. I may include a small quiz!

  Today I'm playing new releases, mostly from 2019, with a few slightly earlier. There's still time to vote for your favorite Classical Stars on the HPR website - perhaps you'll hear a new favorite on today's program!
