Aisle Seat with Julie Schuster
September 10: You Gotta Have Art! The St. Louis Art Fair is happening right outside our studios this weekend, so Julie will share classical pieces inspired by artistic works. Established exhibiting artists include Camille Saint-Saëns, Claude Debussy, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Ottorino Respighi. Relative newcomers are songs from Sunday in the Park with George, soundtrack selections from Girl with a Pearl Earring, a guitar version of “Vincent” by Don McClean, and even a Coldplay tune.
September 3:Seven Deadly Sins ~ Lust – In the second episode of this new Aisle Seat series, Julie explores the deadly sin of lust. Hear music about legendary lothario Don Giovanni/Don Juan, soundtracks from movies like Indecent Proposal and The Seven-Year Itch, selections from Camelot, Oklahoma, and Hamilton… even a Prince song!
Julie joined the staff of Classic 107.3 about six months after the station went on the air as a volunteer weekend host. In her new role she’s dealing with more budgets than Brahms, but she can still be heard on the airwaves with Aisle Seat, a themed blend of classical, Broadway, and other genres that she produces and airs on Sunday afternoons at 5pm. (Find all the episodes here on SoundCloud.)
Julie has served on the board of the Artist Presentation Society, the Ladue Education Foundation, and the Missouri Chamber Music Festival. She sings show tunes in her car and is currently learning Portuguese.
