"Let Freedom Sing" celebrates Independence Day with the Mormon Tablernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square. Julie Amacher hosts this venerable musical institution as they guide us through the canon of American patriotic music.
Music selections for this encore special include John Williams' "Hymn to the Fallen," Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land," "America the Beautiful," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," and "Shenandoah."
Julie Amacher's desire to introduce others to great music is what led her to radio. She began her professional broadcast career at a station in Sun Prairie, Wis. She went from rock 'n' roll to the Rocky Mountains, where she found her niche in public radio at KUNC in Greeley, Colo. Julie spent 13 years at KUNC, where she managed the announcers and their eclectic music format. During that time, she earned four national awards for best announcer. She joined Minnesota Public Radio in 1997 as an on-air host and also produces New Classical Tracks, a weekly podcast critiquing a new release each week.
One hour; approximately 45 minutes of music, with 15 minutes of commentary.
