LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal are one (1) hoour ahead of GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Live from Pritzker Pavilion:
Grant Park Music Festival 2018 – The Grant Park Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Carlos Kalmar, with vocal soloists and members of the Anima-Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus –
Dvorak: The Water Goblin;
Orff: Carmina Burana.
Carl Orff (1895-1982) subtitled his most famous composition Scenic Cantata, and intended it as a collaboration among singers, dancers, and actors. However, it’s as a piece of music for vocal soloists, chorus, and orchestra that has gained its place as one of the most popular and most often-performed choral pieces from the 20th century. Completed in 1936, it sets secular verses from the Middle Ages, allegedly found among the manuscripts of a monastery, first published in the 19th century under the title Carmina Burana. Among the topics of this poetry are springtime, the joys of love, revelry in taverns, and above all, the fickleness of fortune. The first and last sections of the work are called Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, or Fortune the Empress of the World. Carlos Kalmar leads the Grant Park Chorus and Orchestra, along with the youthful singers of Anima and three soloists, in this highly enjoyable music to conclude the 2018 Grant Park Music Festival. We hope that if you’re not at Millennium Park, you’ll join us over the radio, on the Internet, or via your WFMT app for this raucous celebration. (2 hrs., 30 min.)
