We provide daily coronavirus updates on KRCB radio 91. Tune in at 9 a.m. and 6:44 p.m. for the latest local news. Here's our update for Friday, April 24.

032720OutbreakCoronavirusIt’s been another tough week of sheltering at home – with new information on how early coronavirus came to the United States and the Bay Area – and unsound advice about disinfectants and other dangerous or unproven treatments.

And yet there is good news: Congress came together this week to allocate half a trillion dollars where it’s most needed, including for hospitals and testing.

With all that going on, we’ve got a special treat for you on Sunday afternoon. Because the Santa Rosa Symphony has canceled all its in-person activities, they are partnering with us to broadcast a program from last season for the first time, featuring a symphony that everyone knows and loves.

The concert was performed in October 2018. Francesco Lecce-Chong and the orchestra were celebrating his first appearance with the Symphony as its music director.

Francesco talked with news director Steve Mencher via Zoom about activities he’s leading remotely to bring music into our homes as we wait out the pandemic. Listen here:

Join them Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. for performances of Celebration for Orchestra by Ellen Taafe Zwilich*, the Violin Concerto in D major by Brahms, Sonoma Strong, by Paul Dooley, and the Symphony Number 5 in C minor by Beethoven.
