This wee, we're talking with the Heartland Festival Orchestra's David Commanday. Their new season opens with a concert Saturday night at 7:30 at Five Points Washington. It features an appearance by guitarist Jason Vieaux, and Spanish-tinged works by Rodrigo, Arriaga and Chabrier. Commanday talks about some of the pieces on the program, and about finally finding the opportunity to bring Vieaux to central Illinois for a performance.
