Louis Calabro

11/01/12 9:00AM By Walter Parker

Louis Calabro taught at Bennington College from 1955 until his death in 1991.  He also founded and directed the Sage City Symphony.  We'll celebrate what would have been his 86th birthday with his Sonata Fantasia for Tuba and Piano.

Also today, we'll sample new recordings from violinist Rachel Barton Pine's Trio Settecento and from Dartmouth pianist Sally Pinkas.
