The WFMT Radio Network is very pleased to announce the syndication of the Spoleto Chamber Music Festival in conjunction with South Carolina ETV Radio. For over 30 years this 13-week series of 1-hour concerts has showcased world-class musicians from the Spoleto Festival USA.

Hosted by NPR commentator Miles Hoffman, these concerts will feature performances recorded live from the historic Dock Street Theatre in Charleston, South Carolina, during the 2013 Spoleto Festival USA.

Vibrant young musicians featured on the series include cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Inon Barnatan, paired with veteran performers such as flutist Tara Helen O'Connor, clarinetist Todd Palmer, and the members of theSt. Lawrence String Quartet. The series includes celebrated master works from J.S. Bach, Haydn, Fasch, Mozart, Beethoven, Britten, and Debussy, as well as 20th and 21st century music from composers Guillaume Connesson, Darius Milhaud, and Osvaldo Golijov.

For 17 days and nights each spring, Spoleto Festival USA fills Charleston, South Carolina’s historic theaters, churches and outdoor spaces with performances by renowned artists, as well as emerging performers in opera, theater, dance, chamber, symphonic, choral and jazz music. Founded in 1977, Spoleto Festival USA is internationally recognized as America’s premier performing arts festival. And for over 30 years, South Carolina ETV Radio has brought the Spoleto Chamber Music Series, recorded at the annual Festival, to the national radio audience.
