Due to the cancellation of live performances by the RPO due to the COVID-19 virus, Classical 91.5 will be rebroadcasting encore performances from last year for our listeners and members. See the schedule below.

The 2019-2020 season broadcasts are scheduled to air on Monday evenings at 8pm beginning May 11th.  However since the RPO has had to suspend/postpone several concerts, the end of the broadcast season is still to be scheduled.  Thanks to the musicians of the RPO, they have approved the rebroadcast on Classical 91.5 of five concerts from the 2018-2019 season, leading up to the current season broadcast.
