American Public Media's Performance Today is America's most popular classical music radio program and a winner of the 2014 Gabriel Award for artistic achievement. The show is broadcast on hundreds of public radio stations across the country. More information about our stations can be found at APM Distribution.
Performance Today features live concert recordings that can't be heard anywhere else, highlights from new album releases, and in-studio performances and interviews. Performance Today is based at the APM studios in St. Paul, Minn., but is frequently on the road, with special programs broadcast from festivals and public radio stations around the country. Also, each Wednesday composer Bruce Adolphe joins host Fred Child for a classical music game and listener favorite: the Piano Puzzler.
In the PT Young Artist in Residence program, Performance Today highlights young musicians from conservatories around the country who have potential for great careers in music. Previous Young Artists have represented a variety of music schools and organizations including the Juilliard School, the Sphinx Organization, the New England Conservatory, the Colburn School, and the Jacobs School at the University of Indiana. PT is proud to count pianists Orli Shaham, Jeremy Denk, and Charlie Albright, guitarist Jason Vieaux, and violinists Simone Porter and Alexi Kenney among its many former young artists.
Performance Today values excellence, inclusivity, and discovery in classical music performance. We are dedicated to showcasing the performances and stories of all who contribute to the growth of classical music. Click here to learn more about submitting your recording for consideration.
