Rainy-Day Classical

Happy Friday! As much as I love 300 days of sunshine, I do enjoy the other 65 gray days like today. Somehow, they’re perfect for tuning into CPR Classical or turning up a classical playlist with a warm drink in hand. (Today, it’s Spotify and green tea.) The only thing better is experiencing that music live. […]
