Naomi Lewin
Classics for Kids® host

Naomi LewinNaomi Lewin is a native of Princeton, New Jersey, but holds both graduate and undergraduate degrees from Yale. That and $1.25 – give or take a fare hike or two – used to get her on the subway during the years she spent as a singer and actress in New York. She appeared in a variety of opera and musical theater productions around the country, including Anything Goes, 42nd Street, Baby, Noises Off, and The Pirates of Penzance. For OperaDelaware, Naomi created the title role in the Charles Strouse musical Charlotte's Web.

Finally, Naomi wised up and moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky to begin a new career in public radio. From October 1998 to October 2009, she served as the midday music host at WGUC, where she also became the award-winning writer and host of Classics for Kids – a program that airs on public radio stations around the country. In her spare time, Naomi produces Met Cameo intermission features for the Saturday afternoon international Metropolitan Opera broadcasts, and stories for both national public radio programs and 91.7 WVXU. Subjects have ranged from a “roots” trip to Silesia, to the Underground Railroad, to Cincinnati’s Big Pig Gig – a story that included her prize-winning hog call.

In October 2009, Naomi was named the afternoon drive classical music host on WQXR in New York City, returning to her eastern roots. Her role as Classics for Kids host continues.
