" WDAV at 40: Still Classical

After All These Years!

Frank Dominguez has been a familiar voice since 1994 to classical music listeners on WDAV.  Over the years, he has played a crucial part in station programming decisions through his various roles as Announcer Coordinator, Assistant Program Director, Program Director, and currently General Manager & Content Director. His tenure at the station has seen its transition to a fully professional on air staff, several overhauls of its program schedule, and unprecedented growth in the station’s local programming, from the production of original local series such as Carolina Live and Open Air Brevard, to the addition of the overnight Early Shift seven days a week.


He has also directed or hosted a number of live concert broadcasts including the annual Charlotte Lessons & Carols from St. John’s each December. Frank is also the host and producer of Concierto, the nation’s first bilingual classical music program focusing on the Hispanic and Latino contributions to classical music. Currently the program airs on more than forty stations across the country. Because of his work on Concierto Frank earned nominations for the Personality of the Year and Programmer of the Year awards at the 2012 Hispanic Radio Conference in San Diego.


Frank has also served as a consultant to classical radio stations across the country through the Public Radio Program Directors association. Prior to coming to WDAV, Frank began his radio career at 90.7 WFAE, where for eight years he hosted the popular Sunday evening music program, Nightscapes. In addition, he has worked extensively in local theater as an actor and director, including productions for Three Bone Theatre, Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, CAST, Theatre Charlotte and Opera Carolina. He holds a BFA in Theater from Adelphi University as well as MA and MFA degrees from the University of New Orleans.


Frank and his wife, Liz, live in Charlotte and have four grown children, one grandchild, and a menagerie of pets. Happily, most of Frank’s interests are a part of what he does for a living. A few that he can't pursue while on the job are reading mysteries and spy novels, movies, and other types of music.

David Bashor Memorial Organ Concert Series

PUMC - Sanctuary


The Organ Concert Series at PUMC - inaugurated in 2016 - is named in memory of Dr. David Bashor, a member of the Chancel Choir for over thirty years, who served for over a decade as chair of the organ committee. Though many people were actively involved in the new organ project, the vision and dedication of David to this endeavor are largely responsible for the beautiful organ that now graces the Sanctuary.

The Robinson Family Organ incorporates the rebuilt Aeolian-Skinner organ originally housed in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.  The organ was removed from the Kennedy Center, restored and re-installed at Providence UMC in 2013.
