TV: Classic Arts Showcase

Palm Beach County's official TV channel, PBC TV, mostly broadcasts the kind of bland programming you'd expect from a government station: interminable county commission meetings, public service announcements, and hyper-local community interest shows. 

Every weekend evening, though, the soul-crushing monotony of school district and zoning commission meetings gives way to Classic Arts Showcase:

CAS is a satellite programming service funded by the Lloyd E. Rigler – Lawrence E. Deutsch Foundation. It's sort of a highbrow MTV, featuring short clips of classical music, opera, and ballet, along with the occasional short film or live theatre excerpt. If you're a fan of the performing arts, it's a relaxing way to discover new works - one minute you might be watching a ballet set to "Rhapsody in Blue," the next a solo from by Annegeer Stumphius from Haydn's "The Seasons."
