The Immortal Billy Joel

Classical 91.5 listeners are sending composer busts from around the country.  Zap yours to Classicalatwxxi.org or connect through facebook.  We'd love to see your favorite bust.

Do you recognize this guy?  He sits in a bar in a local restaurant in Rochester's Park Avenue area.

 

Isn't he lovely?  Thank you, Michael!

 

This adorable bearded one keeps staff members playing lullabies at the Hochstein School of Music and Dance.

Would you believe there's a bust of The Piano Man?  Thanks, Jody!

 

 From San Tan Valley, Arizona, here's verification that WXXI is even heard in 'strange' places. 

 


Michelle writes, "Our friend Mozart sits on the piano, that is, when he's not being lugged around the house by our 2-year old."

Wolfgang and Ludwig, from the collection of John Williams and Chuck Lundeen

 

Gerry calls this "The Twilight of the Beard."

 

 From Sherrill. "A gift from boys' piano teacher several years ago."

 

 

My desk at WXXI. We inherited Beethoven from former WXXI morning host Simon Pontin. He sometimes wears a hat. Ludwig does, that is.

 



 Across the room, Mona Seghatoleslami's bust of Mozart sports a West Virigina charm.

And she has more toys . . .

 

 

 And finally, this classic sent by Robin . . .
