For classical music fans, NPR's Deceptive Cadence offers a way to discover new artists and learn about news and conversations in the classical music world. News and audio clips are organized into four categories. Issues & ideas feature articles about the history of classical music, which are discussed along with contemporary issues in the field. For instance, in one recent article, NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro interviews Givonna Joseph, a mezzo-soprano and founder of Opera Creole, an organization that "is resurrecting music written by local composers of color and others who've been left out of the overwhelmingly white, male canon." Another recent article considers the role of the London Sympathy Orchestra in the Star Wars films. Music makers feature artist news, profiles, and reviews. Finally, folks interested in hearing new music will want to go straight to now playing.
