When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
Tuesday Classics - Tippett and Schuttenhelm
Join host David Schonfeld on Tuesday, May 1 from 4 to 8 for a program highlighting the work of the celebrated English composer, Michael Tippett (1905-1998). Tippett lived a long and principled life and took an active role in political and social movements. As a composer, he was an iconoclast, and has still not attained the reputation he deserves.
David will be joined for this week's exploration by composer, professor, and Tippett scholar, Thomas Schuttenhelm. Thomas will talk about Tippett the man and composer. There will be plenty of recorded musical examples.
