DePue Brothers Band; Discover the Symphony Orchestra” at Illinois State University


Not every bluegrass band can boast principal players of major orchestras-probably none but the DePue Brothers Band. The four violinist brothers have played together for 25 years and formed the band in 2004. They'll play in Charleston Thursday night. Their drummer--who happens also be the principal timpanist of the Philadelphia Orchestra--joins us for today's show. And we'll hear about a lecture series called "Discover the Symphony Orchestra" at Illinois State University.
