The Class of 2020 is graduating in unprecedented times. Gone are this year's traditional large ceremonies where students mark the occasion by walking across a public stage to receive their diploma. With less pomp under these circumstances, CPR Classical wants to share our public radio stage to celebrate these graduates.
CPR Classical will present a special hour-long Graduation Celebration honoring this year's graduates on Saturday, May 23, at 2 p.m. MDT. It's an hour filled with music you might have heard at an in-person graduation. The program will feature classics such as Elgar's, "Pomp and Circumstance" and Verdi's "Triumphal March", as well as dedications and stories about Colorado students who are graduating this year.
If you have a family member or friend who is graduating this May and you want to make a dedication to them, please send us their information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a voicemail at 720-222-9501.
Include in your email or voicemail:
- the graduate's name
- school they are graduating from (degree if applicable)
- a quick story about their journey
- if you have photos you'd like to share, please include those as well
We'll share the stories to create some community pride in a few ways:
- We will feature graduate photos and stories on CPR Classical's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages*. If you have a photo of your graduate in a cap and gown that is wonderful, but any photo of them you'd like shared will be great.
- Plan your graduation drive-by or neighborhood parade with our celebration music and let us know on our Facebook event page.
- We will be playing dedications and sharing the names and accomplishments of those graduating on the air during our Graduation Celebration program. So tune in on Saturday, May 23, at 2 p.m.!
