Andrew Patner on Arts and Culture

Critical Thinking: Matthew Aucoin (Composer)

In a conversation recorded June 20, 2014, and airing for the first time tonight, Andrew Patner talks with composer/conductor/pianist Matthew Aucoin, whose opera for young people, Second Nature (for which he composed the music and libretto), makes its world premiere this week at the Lincoln Park Zoo with performances 8/19 at 10:00am and 12:00pm, and 8/20 at 4:00pm and 6:00pm.

Second Nature was commissioned by Lyric Opera of Chicago, and will go on a tour around the Chicago area this fall.
