Violinist Sara Sasaki in Urbana and the East Central Illinois Youth Orchestra in Champaign

May 14, 2014

The Urbana Pops Orchestra will present the fifth and final in a series of monthly solo recitals by its members on Saturday afternoon. The orchestra’s associate concertmaster, Sara Sasaki, will give us a live preview of her genre-crossing program on the Wednesday edition of “Live and Local.” I’ll talk also with cellist Jordan Gunn, winner of the East Central Illinois Youth Orchestra’s annual concerto competition, in advance of their spring concert in Champaign Sunday night.
