University of Hartford

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 over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.

Sunday Afternoon at the Opera host Keith Brown writes:

Here's another gem in the Sony Classical series "The Metropolitan Opera. " Il Trovatore was taped live in performance at the Met on February 4, 1961. The veteran Italian conductor Fausto Cleva took charge of the Met Orchestra and Chorus. Getting top billing in the singing cast are Italian tenor Franco Corelli as Manrico and the American mezzo Leontyne Price as Leonora. This particular item in the Sony "Met" series came out in 2011 on two compact discs.
