In the latest of WFMT's Bach to School virtual events, the station welcomed two prominent voices in Chicago's classical music scene: Chicago Sinfonietta CEO Blake-Anthony Johnson and Sinfonietta principal oboist Ricardo Castañeda.

With event host George Preston, WFMT's general manager, Johnson and Castañeda discussed how participating in classical music has shaped their lives, while also reflecting on past performance highlights from WFMT's 70th Anniversary Day of Celebration!

WFMT’s Bach to School Music Program helps teachers build the foundation of classical music for the youngest members of our community by donating instruments, online resources, and sets of classical music to classrooms throughout the Chicagoland area.

Funding for this event was provided by the Ralla Klepak Foundation for Education in the Performing Arts and members of WFMT’s Encore Society.
