This Week with Yannick

Sunday, 12 NOON TO 1 PM
  • Hosted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Yannick Nézet-Séguin—Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Orchestre Métropolitain of Montreal—has spent his career building connections between orchestras, singers, and audiences. Yannick now brings his passion for building connections through music outside of the concert hall and onto the airwaves on WRTI 90.1.

As host and curator of “This Week with Yannick,” an eight-week radio series, Nézet-Séguin offers listeners an intimate listening experience through music and storytelling. Each episode centers around a singular theme, from love and friendship to spirituality and hope, and explores the myriad ways that the deepest connections in our lives can be expressed through music. Nézet-Séguin will share personal reflections and experiences, linking them with a range of classical performances from his own oeuvre and works that have sparked his own creativity.

"This Week with Yannick," which airs Sundays at noon from July 12th to August 30th, is presented by WQXR, New York City's classical music station and WRTI. The series is produced by Merrin Lazyan, producer of the critically acclaimed podcast Aria Code.
