Interview with Sebastian Agignoae
Founder Sebastian Agignoae of the International Orchestra of Refugees tells us how the global language of music can be used to bring together the displaced and the refugees of the world with those they seek to live among to share in the common humanity of all people. And in a very practical sense, the IOR plans to give musicians who live in refugee centers a practical way to make use of their skills to earn money and find a renewed purpose in their disrupted lives.
Public Perspective, with host Kevin McDermott, serves up lively conversation each week with
intriguing guests from a wide range of backgrounds. The half-hour show covers politics,
the economy, business, and social issues with well known public voices and with unsung heroes.
Our guests have included such notables as: the President of the Cook County Board, the Editorial
Page Editor of the Chicago Tribune, the Mayor of Amman, Jordan, and a Nobel Prize nominee as well
as social activists, elected officials, and everyday citizens who have something to say, but whom
you won't see in the mainstream media.
Kevin and his staff draw on a wealth of varied experience in business and industry, entertainment,
religion, the arts, and civic organizations to ask the right questions and focus in on the most
interesting answers. The Public Perspective team brings you shows full of vibrant, entertaining
conversation that will make you think.
