In celebration of National Arts in Education Week, this week we bring you music inspired by music educators. Several local musicians shared with us inspiring stories of the impact that music educators can have in the lives of students.

This week on CMI Streaming’s Local Classical channel we pay tribute to pets. Anyone who has a pet knows they have their own distinct personalities with unique quirks that are part of the reason we love them.
We all know the film scoring industry produces a great deal of the contemporary music we might consider to be in classical styles these days. Perhaps a less obvious source for new music comes from another entertainment industry, video games.
This week on our Local Classical channel, CMI Streaming presents our first Classical Block Party. Created in collaboration with some of our local business partners, we present some of classical music’s best “jams” as well as music paired with some of the best local summer food, beer, and cocktails.
To celebrate the release of Classical Pairings Season Two, we will be streaming a collection of works by the many artists that were featured throughout our weekly host challenges.
Hoping to increase the availability of classical music on the radio in 1961, a group of research chemists at Eli Lilly and Company pooled their resources and sought a broadcast outlet for classical music on the air.
As part of CMI Streaming’s mission to feature local musicians, we also want to include the artistic voice of experts in the community in our programming choices. To that end, this week we bring in a guest host, Clare Longendyke.
With many arts events cancelled, the staff at Classical Music Indy misses seeing our arts colleagues in person, going to concerts, and seeing audiences react to the great work our local arts organizations provide in our community.

Despite the fact that we’re all stuck inside, and aside from the occasional random overnight freeze, spring has sprung in Indiana. To celebrate spring, we’re digging into the CMI archives this week to bring you Rob Funkhouser’s “Three Peacetime Images for Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park.”
This week on CMI Streaming we feature local composer and Butler University faculty member Frank Felice. Felice is an eclectic composer who writes with a postmodern mischievousness: each piece speaks in its own language, and they can be by turns comedic or ironic, simple or complex, subtle or startling or humble or reverent.
We continue our celebration of Women’s History Month on CMI Streaming with this week’s featured artist, pianist Kate Boyd. An active soloist and chamber musician, Boyd has performed solo recitals at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, Schubert’s birth house in Vienna, the National Concert Hall in Dublin, the Musikhalle Hamburg, in addition to many places throughout the US, Greece, Ireland and Canada.
We continue our celebration of Women’s History Month this week by featuring music by composer Eliza Brown. Brown’s work is often interdisciplinary, with a recent focus on musical theater and opera. She also writes music that is, what she calls, intertextual, opening dialogues with existing pieces of music, historical styles, and other cultural artifacts.
We wrap up our Black History Month programming this week with music by Indiana composer David Baker. Born in Indianapolis, Baker served as professor of jazz studies at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, founding the jazz studies program.
We continue our Black History Month programming this week with our featured artist, soprano Angela Brown. Born in Indianapolis, Brown has led a world-renowned career as a vocal soloist. Her highly successful Metropolitan Opera debut in the title role of Aida captured instant attention from international print and broadcast media and catapulted Angela onto the world’s prestigious opera and symphonic stages.
