Concierto is a weekly program of classical music presented in Spanish and English. The program celebrates the Latin contributions to classical music and the rich diversity of Hispanic classical artists. Each week, this two hour program features classical music from Latin American and Spanish composers and performers.

About host Frank Dominguez:
Since 1994 Frank Dominguez has been a familiar voice to classical music listeners on WDAV. Over the years he has played a crucial part in station programming decisions through his various roles as Announcer Coordinator, Assistant Program Director, and currently Program Director. His tenure at the station has seen its transition to a fully professional on air staff, several overhauls of its program schedule, and unprecedented growth in the station’s local programming, from the production of original local series such as Carolina Live and Reel Music to the addition of the overnight Early Shift seven days a week. He has also directed or hosted a number of live concert broadcasts by the Charlotte Symphony, Opera Carolina, Charlotte Chamber Music, the Spoleto Festival USA and the Brevard Music Center.

Frank Dominquez, host of Concierto

Frank has served as a consultant to classical radio stations across the country through the Public Radio Program Directors association. Some of the stations which have benefited from his expertise include WITF in Harrisburg, PA, WUSF in Tampa, KSUI in Iowa City and KVNO in Omaha.

Prior to coming to WDAV, Frank began his radio career at 90.7 WFAE, where for eight years he hosted the popular Sunday evening music program, Nightscapes. In addition he has worked extensively in local theater as an actor and director, including productions for Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, CAST, Theatre Charlotte and Opera Carolina. He holds a BFA in Theater from Adelphi University as well as MA and MFA degrees from the University of New Orleans.

Frank and his wife, Liz, live in Charlotte with their children Torie, Maria and Joe. Happily, most of Frank’s interests are a part of what he does for a living. A few that he can't pursue while on the job are reading mysteries and spy novels, movies, and other types of music.
