New Episode of The New Classical Order Podcast

New Classical Order Podcast Logo

For a little change of pace, we thought instead of another social media diatribe, we thought it would be fun to share the latest New Classical Order Podcast featuring Rosebrook Classical’s David Weuste along with Purdue University professor, Dr. Jennifer Hund. These shows are featured on and Everyday Opera Radio. So make sure and check there for more regular additions. On the last New Classical Order Podcast, David and Dr. Jennifer Hund focused on celebrating the vast varieties of influence that modern American composers have to draw from. This week, they get a little more in depth into one of America’s cultures with a very diverse set of influences — composers and performers of African heritage.
