Meg Bragle, WRTI's

Meg Bragle

Classical Host

As a young violinist, Meg Bragle regularly listened to her local classical music station and loved calling in on Saturday mornings to request pieces, usually by Beethoven. The hosts were always kind and played her requests (often the Fifth Symphony), fostering a genuine love for radio.

Studying violin from the age of three, she always assumed her future would involve orchestral music, but it wasn’t until she fell in love with singing in college that her career took shape. Establishing a distinguished career as a professional singer, Meg performs each year with symphony orchestras and baroque ensembles throughout the USA, UK and Europe. Some highlights include appearances at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists, the Aldeburgh Festival, in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw,
and at the Prague Rudolfinum for the Spring Festival. Among her many recordings are Bach’s B minor Mass and Easter and Ascension Oratorios, Mozart’s Requiem, as well as world premieres by composers Daron Hagen and Toby Twining.

A happy coincidence brought her to radio while living in northern Michigan at the Interlochen Center for the Arts. She began working at Interlochen Public Radio (IPR) as the host of the Saturday request show and weekday Afternoon Classics until she moved to Philadelphia. Meg is thrilled to be working with great colleagues at WRTI and sharing music with listeners whenever she is behind the microphone.

Hear Meg as host of Afternoon Classical, weekdays from 2 to 6 p.m. on WRTI-FM.
