Artist Of The Week: Showcasing Today’s Top Classical Musicians
At CapRadio Music we often share interesting anecdotes about great classical composers of the past. When it comes to who’s doing what in classical music today, however, there are more stories to tell. Enter CapRadio’s new Artist of the Week feature. Listen during Morning Classical with Kevin Doherty weekdays (6:00 to 10:00 AM) to hear recordings by some of today’s most celebrated musicians, along with stories about and from them. You’ll also find plenty of content each week at our website, where you can share your own personal stories and suggestions.

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma kicks things off the week of July 10th. Future featured artists include Sharon Isbin, Daniel Hope, Ann Akiko Myers, Patrick Gallois, Klaus Thunemann, Rachel Barton Pine and many more.

Highlights Of The LA Philharmonic Broadcasts Summer 2017
The Los Angeles Philharmonic season of broadcasts on Capital Public Radio began July 2nd and airs through September 24th. In addition to the majority of concerts filled with Beethoven, Mozart, Mahler, Schubert and other such favorites, this season’s broadcasts also include innovative modern and international fare, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. The July 23rd program features "El Niño” by American composer John Adams, described as a "nativity oratorio." The July 30th program features a sitar concerto performed by Anoushka Shankar.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic broadcasts air Sundays from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Capital Public Radio.

Join The Discussion: Sacramento’s Housing Affordability Crisis
Sacramento's housing shortage affects everyone from middle-class renters priced out of desirable neighborhoods to millennials who may never be able to afford to own a home to homeless residents sleeping (and dying) on the steps of City Hall. There just aren't enough affordable places to live.

CapRadio’s upcoming documentary, The View From Here: Place and Privilege, explores the history, politics and economics of housing affordability in California's capitol. In collaboration with community partners, we’re hosting a series of intimate storytelling gatherings that bring diverse residents together to share experiences, listen to one another and explore solutions.

These “Story Circles” will be held around the city, creating opportunities for residents from different neighborhoods to meet and learn from each other. Refreshments and creativity provided! Bring your hopes and experiences.

Capital Public Radio Brings Home Three PRNDI Awards
Capital Public Radio’s news team has again been honored at the annual PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors) conference, bringing home three national awards for exceptional reporting and in-depth coverage.

Environment Reporter Amy Quinton, Senior Producer Catherine Stifter, and Digital Editor Marnette Federis were recognized with awards for their work on It Takes A River, a multimedia documentary that takes the audience along on a 135-mile trip down the Colorado River. The story won second place in the Short Documentary category, and first place for Best Multimedia Presentation.

Insight Host Beth Ruyak, Senior Producer Jen Picard and the rest of the Insight team were honored with second place in the interview category for Choosing The End Of Life Option, a deeply personal and emotional set of conversations that explores California’s aid-in-dying law from the perspective of terminally ill patients and their family members.

The special segment features a conversation with Carol Yeates, a terminally ill woman who had chosen to take life-ending medication, and who passed away before the segment aired.
