Windy City. Third Coast. Chicago has been a leader in the arts, tourism, and pizza for a long time. The Cubs, Blackhawks, Bulls, and Duh Bears have fans around the world. We’ll focus on Chicago’s musical scene for a once in a lifetime event – the Ear Taxi Festival – that takes place over six days, October 5th to 10th.
We’ll hear from composer Augusta Read Thomas about the Ear Taxi Festival, as well as some of her music, and that of Mason Bates with the Chicago Symphony, plus Third Coast Percussion playing Steve Reich on this episode!
