2 p.m. - Live session from the Music Recital Hall on the University of Montana Campus with the UM Chamber Chorale, featuring Dr. Coreen Duffy, director of Choral Activities at UM.
7 p.m. – Meet our music hosts. Have you ever wondered who's on the other end of your radio playing the hand-picked music you tune in for? As part of Public Radio Music Day you can meet some of our program hosts, ask your questions or just say hello. Register here.
