Kurt Hauswirth

Classical Music Programmer/Producer

Kurt lives in Marquette with his wife Abbey and son Graeme, and can’t imagine living anywhere else. He was born in Marquette and has been a Yooper his whole life. He loves spending time with his family, writing and producing his own music, reading, running, and listening to any music that catches his ear. Kurt graduated from NMU in December 2009 with a degree in Music Education, specializing in Choral Music. He taught music at North Star Academy in Marquette, Messmer High School in Milwaukee, and worked as anaide at Marquette Senior High School. Since 5th grade, Kurt has sang solos and in choir, played trombone in band since middle school, and was in multiple musical ensembles and theatre productions at NMU where he was also a voice student of Dr. Robert Englehart. Kurt hopes to continue collaborating with fellow musicians and sharing his love of the arts with all our Public Radio 90 listeners. In addition to hosting and producing Classical Music programs, Kurt will present local arts and culture features as well as interviews with musicians, composers and authors. He’s the one to contact to schedule an interview. You’ll also see him around our listening area recording our regional classical music performances to air on Public Radio 90. Of course, he’ll also be joining us during our fundraising campaigns looking for listeners like you that help make everything possible.
