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.

Host Keith Brown writes:

This, Wagner's most popular opera, looks forward in its handling of the Grail legend to Parsifal. Wagner entrusted its premiere in 1850 to Franz Liszt, who conducted it in musically complete form at the court theater in Weimar, Germany. (Wagner was then in political exile in Switzerland.)
