A few years ago, when composer Rachel Grimes was helping some family members move, she suddenly found herself with a lot of stuff to sort through. Among the personal items and family photos, she found something that completely shocked her: a bill of sale for a woman and her three children from 1824. The single page document would become a spark for a new folk opera, which will have its Tennessee premiere this week.

Each day on 91Classical, amidst the variety of the day's playlist, we offer a handful of featured selections at set times. Breakfast Baroque gets your day off to a light start, the Lunchtime Local features composers and performers from right here in the Midstate, the 5:00 Waltz celebrates the end of the workday, and our evening features take a different tack each night, from music that carries you to a specific spot on the globe to orchestral music first heard in the movie theater. Here's what's coming up this week:
