The legendary rocker takes a step back from rock shows to perform with RSO June 1 and 2.
Before Rundgren discusses his latest venture, WNIJ's Eric Hradecky gives you a pop quiz on some of the singer's earlier work. Click on the audio link to see if you can identify the hits!
Rundgren then goes on to explain how plans came together for him to perform with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra last year. The collaboration allowed Rundgren to find another orchestra willing work on this type of project. Lucky for fans in northern Illinois, the RSO stepped up to the challenge!

many more were un-able to attend.
SO, will the next symphony shows be captured for posterity ?
