The upcoming performance of the Australian Chamber Orchestra in Ames was the focus of Wednesday’s Local Talk program. Peter Riley, a board member of the Ames International Orchestra Festival (AIOFA), which is sponsoring the ensemble’s visit to Ames, said the group is comprised of relatively young musicians, most of whom perform standing up. The curtain goes up Monday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m. in C.Y. Stephens Auditorium. Also on Wednesday’s Local Talk show, KHOI reporter Roxanne Thompson talked to Kathy Schnable about the work of the ARC of Story County, which provides support and services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
An interview with ACLU honoree Dan Johnston originally scheduled for Wednesday will be aired at a later date.
