Letters to the Editor

Classical music

Several recent letters have commented on the classical music scene in Miami, including the Cleveland Orchestra’s annual visits and the need for a resident orchestra.

Miami likes to remind us that we want to be a world-class city, but we are unable to sustain a classical music station. In fact, we are probably the only city of our size in America that doesn’t have at least one radio station devoted to classical music.

If this city hopes to be a vibrant cultural center, it could do well to secure a radio station that is committed to serving the needs of classical music fans.

What about WLRN? Owned and operated by the School Board, it is primarily just another talk-radio station.
