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.

Tune in to Classical Music Amarillo this weekend to enjoy a program of music for brass quintet in addition to compositions by Clara Schumann and Dmitri Shostakovich!

On Saturday, April 13th, Chamber Music Amarillowill present the final concert of its 2023-2024 season. The show will be at AmTech Career Academy and will feature pianist Diego Caetano and the Carpe Diem String Quartet performing Korine Fujiwara’s Fiddle Suite Montana and Robert Schumann’s Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Opus 44.

On this week's episode of Classical Music Amarillo we'll turn back to another recent performance of quintets by Chamber Music Amarillo earlier this season, playing excerpts from CMA's November 2023 program that featured the Amarillo Brass Quintet with Bill Takacs and David Lough on Trumpet, John Shanks on Trombone, Jeremy Lewis on tuba, and Guli Manfredi on horn performing a program at St. Mary’s Cathedral that included works by Michael Kamen, Kerry Turner, Eric Ewazen, Kevin McKee, and others.

While the upcoming Chamber Music Amarillo concert will feature a quintet by Robert Schumann, on this week's radio show you can look forward to hearing Dr. Sarah Rushing's performance of the Notturno, Op. 6, No. 2 by Clara Schumann, Robert's dear wife. Finally, the episode will conclude with pianist Diego Caetano's performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1 alongside the Amarillo Symphony in May of 2021.

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