KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

Mahler, Dvořák, and Mendelssohn

This week Classical Music Amarillo presents a program of music by composers whose music will be played at upcoming local concerts by the Amarillo Symphony and the Harrington String Quartet!

This week we’re priming our ears for two exciting upcoming concerts featuring the Amarillo Symphony and the Harrington String Quartet. Tune in to Classical Music Amarillo this week to hear the Amarillo Symphony's 2020 performance of the Adagietto (Movement 4) of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5, as well as the Harrington String Quartet's recent performances of Antonín Dvořák's String Quartet No. 10 and Felix Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E-flat Major, Opus 12.

Then be sure to check out the Amarillo Symphony concerts on February 23rd and 24th where the orchestra will present a landmark program opening with a special commission by local composer Nathaniel Fryml and Gustav Mahler’s Gargantuan Symphony No. 5, AND the Harrington String Quartet's February 25th show titled “Sumptuous” in Mary Moody Northen Recital Hall. On that program the quartet will perform Henry Purcell’s Chacony in G minor, Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in A minor, Op. 13 “Ist es wahr?” and, finally, Antonín Dvořák’s String Quartet in C major, Op. 61.

HPPR's new host for Classical Music Amarillo, Dr. Kimberly Hieb, brings her rich knowledge of music history to our regional classical music program.
