WPRB logo

Since 1997, Marvin Rosen has presented the radio programme Classical Discoveries on WPRB, a community supported, student run radio station from Princeton, NJ in the USA which can be listened to live in parts of the USA (most of NJ, parts of PA, Delaware and NY) or on the internet - http://www.wprb.com/. The programme is devoted to rarely heard repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries, with an emphasis on living composers.

Since 2003, Rosen has curated an annual contemporary music marathon, this year the 15th Annual Viva 21st Century Marathon airs on 27 December 2020, 24-hours of non-stop live radio broadcasting music by living composers. Previous marathons have been totally devoted to women composers, to American Composers and to music composed in observance of 9/11. This year's marathon, which will come from Rosen's home studio, will have equal representation of women and men composers and included a number of composer submissions.

You can read more about the music Rosen has played in previous years on Classical Discoveries website, further information from the WPRB website, and you can listen to the station on-line.
