Prior to the concert, Jody Knol will host a half-hour PreView Conversation in Wharton Center’s Jackson National Lounge, beginning at 7:15 p.m. The discussions include someone from the orchestra – possibly the guest performer or orchestra members – who offer insight into the evening’s concert, providing background for audience members. Patrons may even hear passages of music performed or explained and gain an insight that helps one feel more connected to the evening’s program. PreView Jody Knol Conversations are free and the Q&A is lively! The concert itself will include Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, Strauss’ tone poem Death and Transfiguration, and Brahms’ second piano concerto. Joining the orchestra is world-renowned Van Cliburn-medalist Philippe Bianconi. Bianconi was described by the Washington Post as an artist whose playing is “always close to the soul of the music, filling the space with poetry and life.” Timothy Muffitt will conduct the orchestra. For more information about the concert, ticket purchase or other events related to the LSO, visit their website – www.lansingsymphony.org Timothy Muffitt WKAR is a longtime partner with the Lansing Symphony Orchestra and has included performances from the LSO in its 90.5 Community Concerts series, which airs summers on 90.5 WKAR.
