Composer Adolphus Hailstork in Urbana and “White People” at Station Theatre

October 10, 2013

Composer Adolphus Hailstork has written an opera about the Underground Railroad, a cantata on texts by Walt Whitman, organ music based on Gregorian chant and inspired works for all types of musical ensemble. He’ll be present for a concert of his music in Urbana Thursday night, and he’ll be my guest on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.” We’ll also hear a live preview of the play White People, currently at Urbana’s Station Theatre.
