Champaign-Urbana-based CHORALE “Music of the Spheres” concert; Sinfonia da Camera


After its summer tour of three European capitals, the Champaign-Urbana-based CHORALE will open its 30th season with a concert called "Music of the Spheres" Saturday night. Director Julie Beyler will join me on the Thursday edition of Live and Local. And I'll talk with Music Director Ian Hobson of Sinfonia da Camera, who will give a monumental concert Friday in Urbana featuring Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto and the Ninth Symphony.
