The WFMT Radio Network and the estate of Jerome Moross have announced that the radio network has produced a two-hour radio documentary, "JEROME MOROSS: The Big Country and Beyond," in honor of the composer's 100th birthday. It will be available for broadcast by classical music radio stations in the United States and internationally beginning August 1st, the composer's actual birthdate. It is part of a yearlong celebration of the composer that includes a live performance of Moross's 1st Symphony by JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic in April 2014. Produced by British radio documentarian Jon Tolansky, the program is narrated by Grammy award-winning artist and champion of American music, Michael Feinstein. The program features some of Moross's most memorable music with interviews and commentary from many whose lives and careers were touched by the composer, including the legendary singer and actress Kaye Ballard, conductor JoAnn Falletta, and British singer Claire Martin.
