The Cosmos, Theatrical Quintets, Public Radio, And More!

John Clare

Michael Gilbertson is a composer in Iowa, and Tracy Jacobson is a bassoonist in Texas. They are both in West Lafayette to be featured this weekend with the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra. Michael and Tracy spoke to WBAA's Music Director John Clare about a variety of topics - from new work The Cosmos by Gilbertson for Jacobson's theatrical WindSync, to the importance of public radio.

Michael and Tracy have known each other for years, and Jacobson even played a work by Gilbertson in high school! Their project, a concerto for wind quintet and orchestra, is premiered Saturday night at the Long Center for the Arts in downtown Lafayette by the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra.
