Kendall Todd

Digital Associate Producer

Kendall Todd grew up in San Diego, California, and is asked every day why she left. She is a graduate of Tufts University with degrees in French and International Relations. Her interest in music began at age 7, when she went to a Christmas pops concert and got to hold a violin in an instrument petting zoo; she fell in love, and the rest is history. She played in the San Diego Youth Symphony and the Tufts Symphony Orchestra, and especially enjoys being in string quartets. Outside of classical music, her hobbies include arguing about politics, binge-listening to history or science podcasts, and trying every locally-owned coffee shop in the Greater Boston Area. At WCRB, she does a little bit of everything, from behind-the-scenes tasks to filling in for current hosts.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum; Castle of our Skins

The local ensemble Castle of our Skins crafts programs exploring the influence of spirituals on classical music, and particularly on Black American composers. Also in this roundup, the "Boston Peeps," the ProkoPiaf concerto, and an amazing trumpeter who doesn't even use a trumpet!

Wiener Cello Ensemble 5+1

This Beethoven performance is like patting your head and rubbing your belly, to the nth degree. Also in this roundup, Elmo the singing dog, an ice concert, and more!

Opera Parallèle

It's a video... but it's a graphic novel... but it's also an opera? It sure is, and it's awesome. Also in this roundup, harpists have their moment, a TikToker turns names into music, and Yo-Yo Ma out-Yo-Yo Mas himself, all ahead!

What do the neighbors think? Also in this roundup, Swan Lake on an actual lake, instruments made of ice, and a classical music delivery service.
