Live and Local

Theater from the Land of the Sun and the C-U Symphony’s New Conductor


MU is a Zen concept, a legendary lost continent—and a theatrical creation inspired by both, for dancers and musicians.  With striking costumes and music from an array of Western and traditional Japanese instruments, the show comes to Urbana on Friday, and we’ll meet its creators on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.” I’ll also talk with Stephen Alltop, the new conductor of the Champaign-Urbana Symphony, ahead of his inaugural concert.
