Music Academy of the West

From the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California, Carol Burnett hosts this sparkling two-hour broadcast special featuring young artists destined for the top of their field.

The Academy was found in in 1947 by a group of visionary musicians that included celebrated soprano Lotte Lehmann and Conductor Otto Klemperer.  Many great artists contributed during the Academy’s formative years – people like Yehudi Menuhin, Artur Rubinstein, Robert Shaw, Darius Milhaud and Igor Stravinsky.

Carol Burnett, who teaches a masterclass in the art of musical comedy at the Music Academy, is the delightful host of this special two-hour broadcast, which is produced by Marty Ronish.

Music to include Nicolas McGegan conducting “storm music” by Rameau, Leonard Slatkin conducting the rousing Finale of Shostakovich Symphony No. 5, Mozart’s Queen of the Night, and a super-fun percussion premiere by Ted Atkatz.
