Orchestra Iowa Premieres Daugherty

Join us Sunday at noon or Monday at 7 pm for the premiere of "American Gothic," composed for Orchestra Iowa by the multiple-Grammy winning Cedar Rapids native Michael Daugherty. It's inspired by the art of Grant Wood, who spent most of his life in Iowa. Also on the broadcast is Dvorak's 7th Symphony and music of Rachmaninov. Music director Tim Hankewich conducts.
