Fred Child

Performance Today is America's most popular classical music radio program, with more than 1.3 million weekly listeners on more than 260 stations around the country.

Performance Today features timely recordings that can't be heard anywhere else, recent performances by the great artists of our time and by the next generation of classical artists, from concert halls around the globe. Plus interviews and performances from the APM studios, and from concert stages around the country, along with classical music news and features. Every week composer Bruce Adolphe joins host Fred Child for a classical music game, the PT Piano Puzzler. Performance Today is based at the APM studios in Saint Paul, Minnesota, but is frequently on the road, with special programs broadcast from festivals and public radio stations around the country. And in 2006, Performance Today was live from Mozart's hometown of Salzburg, Austria for Mozart's 250th birthday celebrations.
