The Arts Section
Program Host(s): Gary Zidek
The Arts Section spotlights creative people, events and ideas. Every week, WDCB's Gary Zidek shines a light on arts and culture in the Chicago area. The mission is to focus on stories within the arts community that aren't being told, with additional commentary and discussions on literature, music, film, food, special events and anything else creative.
You can listen to The Arts Section every Sunday 8:00 - 9:00 am on 90.9/90.7 FM or online at WDCB.org

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek sits down with acclaimed composer Missy Mazzoli. The Pennsylvania native is the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s new Mead Composer-in-residence. Their conversation covers a variety of topics including Guns N’ Roses, her Met Opera commission and what she has planned for the CSO’s MusicNOW series. The Dueling Critics, Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review Porchlight Music Theatre’s new production of GYPSY. A little later, Daily Herald columnist Sean Stangland joins the show for a conversation about horror film hidden gems. And the program wraps up with a look inside Wrightwood 659, the Lincoln Park-based exhibition space was designed by renowned architect Tadao Ando.
