The Music Of Paris Comes To Bloomington

Illinois Symphony Orchestra

Illinois Symphony Orchestra Music Director Finalist Aram Demirjian makes his second stop in Bloomington Saturday evening at Second Presbyterian Church.

The concert includes Gabriel Fuare's Pavane.

In this conversation with GLT's Charlie Schlenker, Demirjian told why you tend to hear this familiar piece of music more on recordings than in concert halls.
