It's been quite the year, to say the least, but we've managed to make it this far and while this holiday season will no doubt be missing so many things perhaps KLCC can offer some slight comfort with a nice variety of holiday programs that will move, delight, and inspire you. We've got longstanding Public Radio holiday traditions on deck, including our special home-grown ones, and plenty of brand new suprises for this season.


Scott Freck, Executive Director of the Eugene Symphony, hosts an hour-long radio program on KLCC that takes an in-depth look at Eugene Symphony's October 2019 program. This concert featured Matt Browne's Barnstorming Season, Mendelssohn's Concerto for Two Pianos & Orchestra performed by Christina and Michelle Naughton, and Mahler's Symphony No. 1 "Titan."


Audio for this program is no longer available, but there's a new episode on the way... stay tuned for details! 

KLCC is once again partnering with the Eugene Symphony to bring you a special broadcast of recordings from a concert in January of 2020 at The Hult Center for the Performing Arts. Join Eugene Symphony Executive Director Scott Freck as you'll hear Johannes Brams' Symphony No. 2 in D Major, and a mesmerizing work from one of the most exciting composers of our day, Missy Mazzoli

This weekend is of course Oregon Country Fair 2020, and it’s clearly had to be reimagined this year in light of the precautions we’re all taking to protect ourselves and each other right now. This year’s fair has gone virtual, and it’s an impressive feat of technology and creativity. You can even visit KLCC’s booth there!

KLCC News is fully devoted to bringing you the latest, most reliable information on the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.  As a result, we are implementing policies to maintain the availability of this essential news and programming service.
