Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will make its debut on SymphonyCast, a national public radio program showcasing the world’s great orchestras on April 8 and July 1. The program airs locally at 8 p.m. Tuesdays on WGUC (90.9).
Robin Gehl, WGUC’s vice president for programming, says she hopes this will be the start of regular appearances by the Cincinnati Symphony on the national show.
“When we added SymphonyCast to the WGUC lineup last year, we were anxious to be able to share the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra with the rest of the country and the world, and now we have that chance,” she says.

The April 8 program will feature a concert recorded by Cincinnati Public Radio (owner of WGUC) in Music Hall on Sept. 21, with Paavo Järvi conducting and Sharon Bezaly, flutist. The program includes Beethoven’s “Fidelio” Overture, Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 2 in D Major and Andante for Flute and Orchestra in C Major and Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra.
The July 1 program will feature a concert recorded in October with Järvi conducting and violinist Vadim Repin as soloist. The program includes Mahler’s “Todtenfeier” and the “Adagio” from Symphony No. 10, Mahler’s “What the Wild Flowers Tell Me” arranged by Britten, and Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major.
