Sing to your dishwasher, and it just might sing back: The secret of appliance jingles | Your Classical | YourClassical

Do any of your appliances play classical music?

According to this, LG washing machines use a jingle similar to the English folk tune "The Lincolnshire Poacher," which was set for voice and piano by composer Benjamin Britten.

Why does your dishwasher play you a song, and why does your washing machine play Schubert? There's more than meets the eye when it comes to jingles played by your appliances.

Since 1955, our Annual Scholarship Competition has been providing support for talented university students embarking on careers as music educators and performers.

Congratulations to two of our 2019 winners: Oboist Ian Daugherty is headed to Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music to pursue his MM in performance. He'll study with Robert Atherholt, now-retired principal oboist of the Houston Symphony Orchestra.

Scott Little has accepted a full-time position with Brunswick City Schools teaching band and orchestra. He'll teach 6th through 12th graders as well as serve as assistant director of the marching band.

Both Ian and Scott are graduates of Kent State University School of Music. Our 2021 Scholarship Competition is slated for Saturday, March 20.

Alexandre Marr and Alexander Numpaque perform Gabriel Fauré's "Élégie" Op. 24 for cello and piano. Fauré composed the piece in 1880 during a time of anguish over a broken engagement. One can hear the nostalgia and unbearable despair, but Élégie also offers an undeniable sense of beauty and hope.

What were you doing at 10:56 p.m. on July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong planted his foot on the moon? Were you among the more than a half billion people watching on television?

Yesterday marked the 51st anniversary of Apollo 11's landing in the Sea of Tranquility. Here's some music to mark the occasion.

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landings is on the horizon so, to mark the occasion, here are seven classical masterpieces inspired by our incredible cosmos.

We loved presenting Lawrence Brownlee and Eric Owens together on our stage and in local schools in February 2019, sharing their talents from opera to spirituals.

I'm so honored to be on the cover of Opera Magazine, talking about my experience in bel canto, the repertoire of Rossini, and more.

Four courses of classical: Music to dine by

When you’re ready to entertain again, here’s a four-course playlist.

Begin with Yo-Yo Ma’s appetizing rendition of Bach’s Cello Suites as you welcome your guests, uncork the wine, and set out the cheese plates.

End with a gin-and-tonic nightcap of Claude Debussy’s Suite Bergamesque, perfect for when your closest friends stick around after the party until every dish is dirty and at least one wine glass is broken. https://www.classicalmpr.org/story/2014/09/04/classical-cooking

Though cooking can be fun and creative, things can often get stressful when preparing a meal for others. Depending on your composers (and dishes) of choice, turning on classical music can help both relax and entertain you and your dinner guests.

Our Story

Now in our 132nd season, Tuesday Musical is an anchor arts organization in Akron and one of the oldest and most-respected organizations of its kind in the United States. We present the world’s best classical musicians as well as vibrant education and community engagement programs.

On stage and throughout the community, Tuesday Musical is enticing and engaging generations of music lovers by bringing the world’s best music to Northeast Ohio.

The Finest Concerts

Tuesday Musical presents three concert series, all with related Education and Community Engagement activities:

1) Tuesday Musical’s MainStage series features six concerts annually by nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians. Over the years we have presented Yo Yo Ma, Vladimir Horowitz, Imani Winds, Marilyn Horne, James Galway, Renee Fleming, Itzhak Perlman, Ann Hampton Callaway, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, and many more. Most of these concerts take place at E. J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall in Akron, and feature Concert Conversations with the musicians that help to inform and engage our audiences.

2) FUZE series concerts, three each season, engage audiences in unexpectedly delightful ways, often in smaller venues throughout the community.

3) An antidote to workplace stress, our Decompression Chamber series, launched in mid-2017, brings free chamber music concerts to employees and clients at high-pressure sites throughout the city — hospitals, financial institutions, government offices, factories, social service agencies, and more.

Engaging our Community throughout NE Ohio

In tandem with our concerts, Tuesday Musical engages people of all ages and backgrounds within and beyond the concert hall by providing an array of free Education and Community Engagement Programs. More than 5,000 students and adults benefit from these programs every year.

· Every season, Tuesday Musical’s guest artists also teach, perform and inspire during multi-day visits to K-12 schools, universities, libraries, retirement communities, workplaces and more.

· Students across Northeast Ohio can attend all Tuesday Musical concerts and education programs at no cost to them, thanks to our Student Ticket Voucher Program. Parents and chaperones may purchase reduced-priced companion seats so they can sit with their children.

· Tuesday Musical covers the cost of bus transportation for schools and groups bringing more than 20 students to any concert or engagement activity.

· Brahms Allegro, Tuesday Musical’s junior music club, encourages young musicians to develop their skills, perform for their peers, and compete in regional competitions.

· Tuesday Musical’s Annual Scholarship Competition for college and university students majoring in music performance and/or music education is widely recognized as the best in Ohio. Since starting the competition in 1955, Tuesday Musical has awarded more than 550 scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000. In 2019, 20 students won scholarships totaling more than $25,000.

· Tuesday Musical is part of the prestigious and powerful Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program. As a result, we provide free arts education workshops to help teachers increase the artistic literacy of their students.
