On this week's Prairie Performances, Friday night at 7 pm on WILL-FM 90.9: Life, ever growing, ever expanding, life seeking life. That is the inspiration behind Carl Nielsen’s 4th Symphony. He called it “Inextinguishable.” Hear this and other life transforming works with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra led by Stephen Alltop.
