COVID-19 Resources

So long as the human spirit thrives on this planet, music in some living form will accompany and sustain it.
- Aaron Copland

Everyone in our community has been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19). Discover Classical is committed to being your refuge on the radio, especially in times of concern, so we'll continue to bring you classical music all day. We wish you good health and peace of mind.

Discover Classical's President and CEO Shaun Yu gave an inspiring talk about classical music at TEDxDayton in 2014. Now is a good time to remember to "seek out your driveway moments with classical music, because at those times when we seem to be at a complete loss for words, it's this music that can pick up right where words leave off."
