About American Public Media

In January of 2004, American Public Media produced four one-hour chamber music programs from the superb inaugural season of the Music@Menlo music festival. These four programs showcase highlights from last summer's chamber-music celebration that embraced students, an eager audience, and an A-list of performers from around the world. American Public Media was on-site for the run of the festival and recorded all the performances. A new series of produced shows from this summer's events is planned for early 2005.
