“Cold Sassy Tree” at Sugar Creek Symphony & Song in Watseka


Carlisle Floyd may not be a household name to the average music lover, but to opera buffs he’s one of America’s foremost composers and librettists. His opera Cold Sassy Tree has romance, scandal, vivid characters and beautiful music, and it’s this year’s production at Watseka’s Sugar Creek Symphony & Song. We’ll hear a live preview, and a conversation with the composer, on the Monday edition of “Live and Local.”
