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.

Host Keith Brown writes:
Idomeneo was Mozart's first mature masterwork of opera, first staged in Munich in 1781. I have presented Idomeneo four times before, utilizing two recordings that were historic oldies-but-goodies and two that were in the newer, historically informed practice.
