      About the Show

      Saturdays at 4:30 pm

      Larry Johnson

      Arias & Songs celebrates great singers of the past and present, from Maria Callas and Jussi Bjoerling to Renée Fleming and Jonas Kaufmann. Each week, recording collector and host Larry Johnson spins a wonderful web of opera, operetta, Broadway tunes, art songs—even vintage pop. Expect the unexpected as Larry guides you through the range and nuance of vocal artistry; with some special attention to local performance as well.

      Metropolitan Opera (winter)

      Lyric Opera of Chicago (May-July)
