More classical

As a supporter of local music and a WTJU classical announcer, I thought that the recent edition of the Hook (April 25) did a superb job covering the local music scene and its support from the community. But the article ignored one essential feature– local classical musicians and ensembles. From orchestras such as the Charlottesville University Symphony Orchestra and the Waynesboro Symphony, ensembles such as Three Notch'd Road and Zephyrus, and many individual musicians, our area abounds in great classical music. I could list many more examples.

Perhaps local classical music might be featured in the future?

I'll second John's comment. I have a program on WTJU, the Early Music Show (Mondays, 6 to 8 P.M.) with Cinder Stanton, and we have a lot of listeners. All the classical music department programs at WTJU have a large and faithful audience that needs to be considered whenever the Charlottesville - and Virginia - music scene is discussed.
