The Seattle Symphony and Seattle’s Classical KING FM 98.1 are collaborating on a new streaming channel, the KING FM Seattle Symphony Channel.
The new streaming channel, which begins on Sunday, March 29, replaces the current “KING FM symphonic channel” and can also be accessed directly on the HD radio station 98.1 HD3, or through iHeartRadio, TuneIn, iTunes, or the free Classical KING FM smartphone app.
The first 24 hours of programming starts on March 29 at 12:01 a.m., and is a dedicated Sibelius marathon. Captured live in concert during the festival, the three programs, under Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Dausgaard, encompass all seven of Sibelius' symphonies, along with the Violin Concerto featuring guest violinist Pekka Kuusisto, and Finlandia.
Following the opening Sibelius marathon, listeners will continue to hear a variety of symphonic repertoire from commercially released recordings by the Seattle Symphony and others. The stream will be infused with the Seattle Symphony’s artistic point of view and conversations with Seattle Symphony musicians and guests.
