KPR: Your source for holiday listening

KPR logo

Listen to Christmas music during live classical programming at KANSAS PUBLIC RADIO for an excellent alternative to commercial radio. Tune in weekdays, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, and evenings after 6:00.

KPR, located on the campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence, offers the best in traditional carols, as well as larger works, such as Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, Monteverdi’s Vespers for the Blessed Virgin, or Renaissance works for brass. KPR is not too proud to include the occasional jolly secular work, but the programmers never obscure the true focal point of Christmas. Tune in today!

If you’re within range of Lawrence and want to listen off line, you’ll find KPR at 91.5 FM on your radio dial.

The Presiding Bishop, on the death of Nelson Mandela

mandela The people of The Episcopal Church join the world in mourning the death of Nelson Mandela, prophet and witness to justice.

His leadership spanned decades, before and during imprisonment on Robben Island, and continuing into the establishment of a nation that aspires to serve the freedom and dignity of all human beings. He helped the world to see a shining vision of the incarnate Reign of God.

We pray that it was not simply a brief glimpse, but that his labor may be joined to that of others, grounding and growing a world of peace with justice for all. May God welcome this shepherd home in peace.

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church
