This Week's Broadcasts

Anne Morrow Lindbergh was a pioneering aviator, best-selling author, mother of six, an ambassador’s daughter, and the wife of the brilliant but controversial figure Charles Lindbergh. Her life was filled with great adventure and great tragedy, as her first child was kidnapped and killed in one of the most notorious crimes of the 20th century. In 1955, Anne published Gift from the Sea, a search for meaning that still resonates with readers today, selling millions worldwide. 

Anne Morrow Lindbergh: You'll Have the Sky is narrated by award-winning actors Judith Light and Lily Rabe. State of the Arts series producer Susan Wallner received a Mid-Atlantic Emmy for Writer for the program, which has been broadcast nationwide.

Classical Music Month

September is Classical Music Month, and we're celebrating by reaching into our State of the Arts archive.

In 2014, Chatham Baroque played music from the time of the colonies in the historic Prallsville Mills in Stockton, NJ. The earliest parts of the mill date back to 1790, not too long after independence. Although Corelli, Kapsperger, Scarlatti, and Couperin might not have been listened to in an industrial mill back then, the members of Chatham Baroque appreciated the historical setting and acoustical qualities of the old wooden building.
