Classical Music with Barney Sherman

Sundays at 12 p.m. on IPR Classical


Around the world and around our state, people are writing music that goes straight to the heart, and performing older masterworks with the fluency of people speaking a native tongue. Barney's mission is to make it easy for you to connect to this new era of classical excellence, while providing you with musical companionship you can count on.
