Classical Hour Concert Series
The Classical Hour started as a series of Sunday afternoon concerts in the lobby of the Historic Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, US, on December 6, 2009.

In an effort to have classical music available to all, the Classical Hour has grown now into a regular concert series and a radio program.

It is incorporated as SUNDAYS LOVE MUSIC FOR EVERYONE, INC. and receives tax-deductible donations as of March 2015.

The purpose of the corporation is to inspire and challenge the public with live performances or other media of classical music, and to educate and enhance the love of our long term heritage of great composers of music.

The Classical Hour is also a regular radio program every Sunday at 4pm on Crescent Hill Radio, WCHQ 100.9 FM. The performances are streamed/broadcast live and can be downloaded from the site and heard from anywhere in the world. The radio program is sponsored in part by The Wine Rack, The Piano Shop, State Liquors, Cook's Piano Service, and Brasserie Provence.
