Click the sound file below ("hopefeature.mp3") to hear her talk and sing. (Our complete conversation will be available as a podcast soon at wxxi.org.)
Brenda Tremblay presents inspiring classical music, recent performances by Rochester artists, and highlights from concert halls around the globe. Plus interviews, classical music news, features, and the latest headlines.

Great Britain's Aldeburgh Festival is paying hommage to the 100th birth anniversary of composer Benjamin Britten with a crazy idea: staging Britten's opera Peter Grimes on the actual beach where the story is set.
