My friend, the extraordinarily talented violinist, Casey Bozell, concertmaster of the Newport Symphony, and member of the Portland Opera Orchestra and Oregon Ballet Theater, hosts a new podcast, “Keep Classical Weird.”
In it, she explores some of the more quirky stories and odd facets of classical music. Pairing Beethoven with beer and examining Mozart’s taste for scatological humor are a couple of topics you will hear about, interspersed with interviews with musicians, conductors, and musicologists.
Each episode is short, just 15-20 minutes, and Casey is a merry and delightful host.
I’ve listened to all the episodes and look forward to her upcoming offerings.
I encourage you to check them out as well.
