Pianist Min Kwon on Between the Keys June 22nd and 23rd
On this week’s episode of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Virgil Thomson Award winning program Between the Keys, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence Jed DIstler welcomes a special guest, the pianist/educator/curator Min Kwon, who launches her unprecedented large-scale America/Beautiful commissioning project in a series of live streamed and public concerts beginning on July 4th.
“Min Kwon asked more than 70 composers either to write a variation on or a piano piece inspired by the song ‘America the Beautiful,’ says Distler. “To have so many diversely creative voices respond so positively in the wake of the pandemic says it all, and I’m especially proud to be one of the composers involved.”

Join Min Kwon and Jed Distler for music and conversation on Between the Keys, this Tuesday night June 22nd at 10, with a rebroadcast Wednesday June 23rd at noon, exclusively on The Classical Network and WWFM.org.
