On January 28 at the Capitol Theater, the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra presents the world premiere of “Symphony No. 8, Here I Stand” by Composer in Residence Dr. Bill Banfield, which honors the work and life of Paul Robeson. This piece involves both narrative and multimedia elements, developed in collaboration with UW-Madison School of Education and Communication Arts alum Rigoletto Lopez.
Ava Borelli chatted with Dr. Banfield on Classical Jukebox about his work and the debut of this most important musical piece. More information about the event can be found here.
