Heard On Simply Superior
Concertmasters Erin Aldridge, of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, and De Ann Letourneau, of the Las Vegas Philharmonic, join host Robin Washington on the eve of their Saturday, July 24 performance at Lucius Woods in Solon Springs. The two violinists discuss their Superior connections plus the program’s eclectic repertoire, their shared techniques, and their uncanny ability to play amazingly in sync as violin “twins.” The pair will be joined at Lucius Woods by pianist Alexander Sandor.
Also on this week’s show, Duluthian and pod-caster Jim Richardson, who penned an essay last year on Perfect Duluth Day, re-evaluating stories from his childhood that his forebears had fought on both sides of the Civil War. Yet after his own investigation, he found his Confederate ancestry, more one-sided than he was led to believe, and joined Simply Superior host Robin Washington to share what he found.
