Music director is hospitalised for the holiday season

The Rockford Symphony Orchestra has lost its longstanding music director to an unspecified accident.

It says Steven Larsen was ‘injured in an accident last week and is recuperating in a hospital’.

A guest conductor has been called in for the Holiday Pops.

Larsen is a past Illinois Conductor of the Year. This is his 28th season as music director in Rockford, Ill.

Be careful out there.

    Illinois has a “Conductor of the Year”? Isn’t that just a euphemism for “Mafia Approved”?
