Champaign-Urbana Symphony Plays Nielsen and UI Computer Music Project Turns 30


The Champaign-Urbana Symphony will give a concert Saturday night that features Carl Nielsen’s Fourth Symphony, called the “Inextinguishable.” It’s an especially powerful work, with a passionate advocate in conductor Stephen Alltop, who will join me on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.” I’ll also talk with Sever Tipei, director of the University of Illinois Computer Music Project, celebrating its 30th anniversary with two upcoming concerts.
