Elena See hosts Classical Evenings Monday-Wednesday.

Elena started her radio career in Minnesota in 2001, working as part of the production team for Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. When she's not on the public radio airwaves, Elena usually spends her time with her family (which includes several enormous dogs), searching out new music venues with friends, reading great (and not-so-great) books, and pretending she can play the guitar.

Bob Christiansen hosts Classical Evenings Thursday-Saturday.

Bob has been an announcer and program director for nearly 30 years. Christiansen also hosts shifts on Minnesota Public Radio's classical music stations, including hosting "The Opera," a weekly program devoted to one of his personal weaknesses.

Valerie Kahler hosts Classical Evenings Sunday nights.
