  Jody Knol Hosts March LSO PreView Conversation
  The Lansing Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will offer Brahms’ Piano Concerto
  No. 2 on Saturday, March 10, at 8 p.m., as its fifth MasterWorks concert
  this season.
  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.
