Beyond Category

The great Duke Ellington described the best music as being "beyond category." "Beyond Category with Eric Felten" brings the best of jazz, blues, swing, and more.

Join host Eric Felten in the clubs around Washington D.C. for a behind-the-scenes, intimate conversation with world-class musicians working in jazz and blues. Part interview, part jam session, explore the history, rhythms and sounds of great music.

Your host, a jazz trombonist in his own right, interviews great artists - and sits in to perform with them, taking the audience on an unpredictable musical adventure.

If you have never seen an opera, Castleton is a great way to start. Get there early, have a picnic in the beautiful country. Enjoy a glass of wine. Then take in an opera.
