Interview with Radio Purdue's John Clare

I wasn't sure what to expect of Cor Christmas from Saint Louis Symphony Solo English horn player Cally Banham. Turns out, it is amazing! English horn isn't the first instrument you might associate with the holidays, but this new release will make sure it's part of your core recordings and celebrations.  This instrumental collection of sacred and secular carols featuring Banham's own ensemble Cortango, Adam Maness Trio, and Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony presents a varied journey through popular Christmas tunes, presented in a fusion of classical and jazz styles and reimagined in new and sonorous arrangements!

Radio Purdue - WBAA Classical Music Director, John Clare spoke with Banham about the new release. LISTEN
