In this episode of NMFBG, we conclude our three-part survey of music by Pulitzer prize winner (and BGSU alumna) Jennifer Higdon. We hear two more high-powered concertos, and learn more about her early years at Bowling Green — not just from Jennifer herself, but from acclaimed conductor Robert Spano, who was on faculty at the time.
