Robert Chen of the Chicago Symphony and Kate Tombaugh for Prairie Fire Theatre


Robert Chen is concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, who will play in Urbana Saturday night. We'll talk about his role with the orchestra and about the piece he'll play: the Violin Concerto by Paul Hindemith. And I'll visit with Streator-born mezzo-soprano Kate Tombaugh, a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University. She'll return to Bloomington to present a one-woman show for Prairie Fire Theatre, called "It just takes one"--a comical take on dating for people of all ages.
