The Rockford Symphony Orchestra welcomes Robin and Linda Williams at Starlight Theatre
by Press Release

Join Steven Larsen and the Rockford Symphony Orchestra for an evening of unique Americana music on Saturday, August 11 at 8 p.m.  The RSO will be performing at the beautiful Bengt Sjostrom (Starlight) Theatre at Rock Valley College. 

The RSO welcomes Robin and Linda Williams, who for more than a quarter of a century have delighted audiences with a blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that truly merits the title of "American music."  Robin and Linda are frequent guests on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and were featured in the recent Robert Altman film by the same name.  This performance with the RSO marks their orchestral debut. 

Robin and Linda are no strangers to Rockford, having performed in venues throughout the city since the 1970s and have been featured artists of Charlotte’s Web for the Performing Arts.

Tickets for An Evening with Robin and Linda Williams can be ordered through the Starlight Theatre box office at 815-921-2160.  Price is $25 ($24 for students and seniors).  This concert is presented in cooperation with the Starlight Theatre and Charlotte’s Web for the Performing Arts.
