We’re pleased to announce a new feature on CapRadio Music: Artist of the Week.  Listen weekday mornings as host Kevin Doherty presents recordings by some of today’s most acclaimed classical musicians, along with stories about -- and from -- them. 

You'll often hear interesting anecdotes about great composers of the past on CapRadio.  But with Artist of the Week, we want to keep you in touch with who's doing what in classical music today.

And be sure to bookmark this page and come back often.  Each week Kevin will share some biographical notes, videos, links to articles and interviews and lots more.
