Savannah Music Festival: Edgar Meyer & Mike Marshall

Airs Thursday, July 11 at 8 p.m. Throughout a lifetime of performing and composing, Edgar Meyer has turned the double bass into a modern virtuoso instrument that is equally at home in classical music and in the American vernacular. Mandolin master Mike Marshall has been blending genres in acoustic music for more than 30 years, performing and recording with players in bluegrass, classical, jazz and Brazilian music - so it's no surprise that Marshall and Meyer have developed a fully realized concept of the mandolin/bass duo, presenting a repertoire that spans the globe. Tune in for highlights from their 2012 performance in the Charles H. Morris Center at the 2012 Savannah Music Festival.

The Story of Christmas: A Pageant from Washington National Cathedral

Airs Thursday, December 20 at 2:00 p.m. This year's annual special Christmas broadcast from the Washington National Cathedral with the Cathedral Girls' Choir brings a unique performance of Benjamin Britten's much-loved Ceremony of Carols, marking 70 years from its first performance in England in 1942.

The girls are joined by young actors from Princeton Day School in Princeton, NJ, who present the biblical narrative in their own words and commentary.
