Through the Airwaves: Lecture on Classical Music and Broadcasting at Lone Star College-Montgomery

Elaine KennedyThe Lone Star College-Montgomery Lyceum Speaker Series invites the community to discover the role of art over the airwaves through a presentation entitled “Classical Music, Community, and Broadcasting,” by radio host Elaine Kennedy, on Tuesday, March 1, at 12 p.m., on campus in the college’s new Music Hall (Building H, Room 102).

The presentation is free to the public. Refreshments will be provided, and a meet-and-greet reception will start at 11:30 a.m. in the same location.

Kennedy is a host and morning concert producer at Houston Public Radio, KUHF 88.7 FM, which broadcasts news and classical music, as well as fine arts events within the community.

Her presentation will include what appeals to music lovers and radio listeners, as she’ll discuss the role of classical music within the community, the movement of KUHF 88.7 FM radio station to two stations as it begins to separate news from music, and her responsibility as a disc jockey in classical music for a modern audience.

The Lyceum Speaker Series at LSC-Montgomery provides a variety of free lectures throughout the fall and spring semesters that are based on sociological, historical, economical, political, psychological, and spiritual views. All students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members, are invited to attend any Lyceum event throughout the year.

In addition to serving as a Lyceum event, this presentation will also be offered through LSC-Montgomery’s Academy for Lifelong Learning, a program for older, active adults that offers continued intellectual and personal growth.
