Airs Monday, December 5 at 11 a.m. Manuel de Sumaya (1678-1755) is probably the best known composer from colonial Mexico and a shining star of the baroque era. In celebration of the holiday season, A Baroque Christmas in the New World features The Historical Performance Institute of the Jacobs School of Music (Indiana University) under the direction of Dana Marsh in a program of music from 17th- and 18th-century Mexico, Peru and Bolivia, featuring works by Juan de Araujo (1646-1712) and Manuel de Sumaya (1678-1755).

Airs Sunday, April 5, at 10 a.m. An hour-long program of early music, celebrating the Christian holidays around Easter. Choral music from the times and lands of the Pre-Baroque era is all about endless layers upon layers of the richest of human and vocal harmonies. From the Renaissance through the baroque, music for Holy Week and Easter Sunday will be explored, in addition to a new release by Rinaldo Alessandrini's Concerto Italiano.  Hosted by Angela Mariani.

Capitol Steps Politics Takes a Holiday Year End Review
Airs Wednesday, December 31 at 7 p.m.
Repeats Thursday, January 1 at 7 p.m.
Help say good-bye and good riddance to 2014 with the Capitol Steps and their annual year-end review.  It’s all in their hour-long special of “Politics Takes a Holiday!”  This year will feature all-new awards, such as: “Is that guy jumping the White House fence or is he just really into Michelle’s ‘Get Moving’ campaign?  “You say ISIS, I say ISIL.  Let’s call the whole thing off.”  And of course, “I scream, you scream, we all scream EBOLA!”

 Go ahead and announce it on your social media pages, but don’t post it on the Cloud because we have some pictures we really don’t think the world is ready to see. So let’s send 2014 out like a character from Fifty Shades of Grey…with a bright red bottom.
