Cedille Day


With over 30,000 recordings in WFMT’s “record” library, the staff seldom focuses on a single record label for very long. When it happens, it’s usually because an artist has an exclusive agreement with a label; and the programming staff is featuring that artist.

On Friday, WFMT honors a record label that has made it its mission to enhance the cultural life of Chicago. Cedille Records Day celebrates the Chicago-based record label that for 25 years has been recording the gifted and diverse musicians and composers who live among the people of Chicago, teaching music, giving concerts, and exporting Chicago’s music scene to other parts of the world.

The all-day celebration features music and conversation with Cedille Records founder Jim Ginsburg, as well as several live performances with Cedille artists.

Patrice Michaels with Kuang-Hao Huang and Nicholas Photinos; and Rachel Barton Pine
