The top floor of the Illinois Terminal in downtown Champaign  will provide a dramatic nighttime setting for this intimate fundraising event. The highlight of the evening will be Hoiby’s 18-minute one-woman opera with small chamber ensemble, the text of which comes from a recipe for chocolate cake by Julia Child.
