Episode #6 - Kevin Rhodes

Kevin Rhodes and John Nowacki

Kevin Rhodes the dynamic Music Director and Conductor of the Springfield Symphony hardly needs introduction. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Kevin to talk about his work with the symphony, what he does when he’s not in the area (HINT: It’s NOT fishing!), and the Symphony’s upcoming 75th Anniversary season which gets underway September 22.

Originally from the Midwest, John Nowacki has had an interest in classical music since he was a high school student, having discovered organ music recordings by E. Power Biggs and singing in the high school’s choirs. His radio career began in 1982 at WILL-FM in Champaign-Urbana, Ilinois, where he started as a board operator for local programming, then became a classical music host. He worked for several Illinois stations before making the move to WNPR in 1990.
