Prairie Performances

Rush Hour

Ian Hobson

Sinfonia music director, conductor and founder Ian Hobson.

This week's Prairie Performances on WILL-FM 90.9 will highlight the annual, youth-focused Rush Hour concert in the Foellinger Great Hall at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. This performance features young talent from our community, and again showcases the college and high school winners of the Sinfonia da Camera Student Concerto Competition.  Anton Dvorák’s raw and bold New World Symphony portrays a land of endless possibility, and these young soloists will echo this sentiment of limitless potential with their inspired concerto performances.
