JPR Conversation With Violinist James Ehnes

During the Britt Classical Festival, JPR hosted special pre-concert conversations in the Performance Garden with Britt soloists, guests, and orchestral members.

On Friday, August 14th 2015, JPR's Geoffrey Riley talked with the incredible visiting violin soloist James Ehnes about the history of his violin, his musical upbringing, and everything in between.  We'd like to thank Britt for their work collecting the video for this series.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
