Classical WETA’s VivaLaVoce presents classical vocal music in all its forms, from the Middle Ages to the present, 24 hours per day. Featuring Opera, Choral Music, and Art Song, the station offers something for everyone who loves vocal classical music.
Each week VivaLaVoce showcases a notable new (or newly reissued) CD. Hear selections from the CD on-air throughout the week, and learn more about the artist and the music here on our website. Our friends at ArkivMusic join in by putting that recording on sale for the entire week and contributing a portion of each sale to WETA.
