No Shepherd broadcast Friday, Dec. 3rd

Due to hefty fees from foreign publishers who don’t seem to understand the conventions of U.S. terrestrial radio broadcast law, the Shepherd Symphony Orchestra concert this Friday, December 3rd, will not be broadcast on KTRU. Really sorry about this. I did all I could to negotiate the prices down over the summer, but as of now there’s kind of nothing I can do about it. We will continue with broadcasts next semester. Thanks for your patience!

The Fall Season of SSO Live Broadcasts Begins!

Tune in Saturday, October 2nd at 8 p.m. CT for an exclusive live broadcast of the Shepherd School of Music Symphony Orchestra concert only on KTRU 91.7FM!

Manuel de Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain (Brian Connelly, soloist)
Johannes Brahms:
Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 68

Not quite the death of KTRU, but the death of our 91.7 existence. Regardless, we shall continue with the broadcasts online. I’ll keep you posted on Shepherd Symphony Orchestra broadcast development, but in the mean time, I would recommend making noise about this by:
