Live and Local

Conductor Rei Hotoda; NewHeir Bluegrass Band


This concert season I've been talking with all five of the candidates for Music Director of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, as each has been guest conducting the orchestra. On the Wednesday edition of "Live and Local," we come to the final candidate of the five, Rei Hotoda, who leads the orchestra in concerts this weekend. I'll also visit with members of the NewHeir Bluegrass Band, participating in a festival in Urbana on Saturday.
