Brian Newhouse
Broadcast Host


Brian Newhouse American Public Media warmly welcomes Brian Newhouse as the host for the Minnesota Orchestra broadcasts. He's no stranger to the Orchestra: he served as the broadcast host from 1986-1991. And listeners will recognize him more recently for his announcing on the 24-hour music service, Classical 24.

Brian holds degrees in voice and English, and is a soloist with the Minneapolis-based Dale Warland Singers. He was an Artist-in-Residence at the Oregon Bach Festival. In 1992 he worked as a journalist in Germany with Radio Deutsche Welle in Cologne, covering topics from the Balkan War to European music festivals. And he is a published author. His memoir, A Crossing: A Cyclist's Journey Home, about his bicycle trip across the United States, was published by Simon and Schuster's Pocket Books in 1998. Brian won a Peabody Award in May 2000 for writing "The Mississippi: River of Song," a seven-part music documentary that aired on Public Radio International.
