SymphonyCast is a two-hour weekly program featuring a full-length concert by a national or international symphony orchestra. Concerts are drawn from Europe's leading ensembles, along with U.S. orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra. The host of SymphonyCast is Alison Young of Minnesota Public Radio. Before becoming involved in radio, she enjoyed a successful career as a concert flutist. Young earned her bachelor's degree in music from the University of Southern California and a master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music.
