Live and Local

Red Note New Music Festival and Yonder Mountain String Band


The Red Note New Music Festival continues at Illinois State University in Normal through March 7th, with nightly concerts. Thursday’s concert will feature works for band, including a brand new one by Steve Danyew called This World Alive. I’ll talk with Mr. Danyew and with ISU Symphonic Band conductor Daniel Belongia on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.” We’ll also hear a short feature on the Yonder Mountain String Band, who return to Urbana Thursday.
