Why are we drawn to a good tune? Find out as WRTI Classical Host Debra Lew Harder sits down at the piano in the WRTI Performance Studio and plays selections from her new concert and conversation program, The Human Need for Melody, and chats with WRTI’s Susan Lewis.


Why do we love a good melody? How does a good melody stick in our brains and make us feel things we can’t even put into words? And what does the latest scientific research show about how listening to music and melody improves our overall health?

Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave, born in 1928, has a life most of us—young or old—would envy. Still creative and writing in a bold, distinctive style, she's produced a large body of work over a 60-year career, in music ranging from intimate chamber works to the largest symphonic and operatic forms.

Music Lives in Gloucester County, New Jersey, where WRTI’s Meridee Duddleston finds a concert series that focuses on bringing music to a previously underserved community.

A concert series in southern New Jersey’s Washington Township attracts top-notch performers from the region, across the river, New York, and all around.  The Music at Bunker Hill concerts take place in a church built on a high point in Gloucester County.

Starting with three concerts, the program has steadily grown.  Having just completed its fifth season, the Sunday series stands out as a breath of fresh air. The sanctuary of Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church is the venue for Music at Bunker Hill, and it's Where Music Lives.
