In 1998, the Performing Arts Center began recording many of its concerts for broadcast on American Public Media’s Performance Today, the most popular classical music program in the country. The Performing Arts Center is proud to be a national ambassador for UGA and Athens by sharing its outstanding acoustics and world-class programming with millions listeners every week.
American Public Media’s Performance Today is a winner of the 2014 Gabriel Award for artistic achievement. The show is broadcast on hundreds of public radio stations across the country, including WUGA FM.
Performance Today features live concert recordings that can’t be heard anywhere else, highlights from new album releases, and in-studio performances and interviews. The program is based at the APM studios in St. Paul, Minn., but is frequently on the road, with special programs broadcast from festivals and public radio stations around the country.
