We’ll hear highlights from this season’s Improvisionaries series with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Sunday at 5 PM on WRTI 90.1.
The concerts feature Music Director Dirk Brossé conducting a performance of his DNA in Music, featuring flutist Mimi Stillman. It was the U.S. premiere of the work that takes its cues from DNA’s simple “nucleotides” to create four-note melodies.
