Continuum presents early music performed on four different instruments from the medieval and Renaissance periods: the viola da gamba, the Renaissance lute, the organetto, and the recorder.
Continuum presents a program called The Cries of London, referring to the short lyrical and musical calls of merchants hawking their products and services at the beginning of the 17th century. You'll hear the cries and related music of this period.
Classical WWNO Weekly Schedule
WWNO is New Orleans’ source for 24-hour classical music available on standard FM radios in New Orleans and the Eastbank and Westbank suburbs.
You can also find us on your HD radio at 89.9 FM-HD2 throughout most of the greater metropolitan area. Our digital streams are live worldwide here and on our mobile apps.
The prospect of having a radio station playing classical music 24/7 in New Orleans is one that makes me extremely happy. Radio stations devoted to classical music are beacons of education, culture and harmony. I am celebrating this prospect, even more as a parent of young children than as the conductor of the Louisiana Philharmonic!
