Your Host

Naomi Lewin is the host of the Classics for Kids® radio programs. She writes all the shows, picks the music for them, and produces them on her computer.

When she was a kid in Princeton, New Jersey, Naomi took piano and oboe lessons, but what she really loved to do was act and sing. As soon as she was old enough, Naomi took voice lessons, and learned how to sing opera. Naomi has performed in lots of operas, musicals, and plays. The operas she likes best are The Marriage of Figaro, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Albert Herring, by Benjamin Britten.

Naomi has hosted Classics for Kids® since it began in 1998, when she joined WGUC in Cincinnati, Ohio as a classical music host. She now produces podcasts and radio programs, hosts Classics for Kids® Live, and reports on the arts for NPR.
