Springfield Choral Society Honors Longtime Director and Justin Roberts Plays Allerton


Marion van der Loo is completing her 20th season as music director of the Springfield Choral Society. To celebrate, the Society commissioned three choral pieces, each based on one of her own poems, to be premiered at their concerts this weekend. I’ll talk with Marion on the Friday edition of “Live and Local.” And I’ll visit with Chicago’s Justin Roberts, who will bring his Not Ready for Naptime Players to Allerton Park in Monticello for family concerts on Sunday.
