The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra performs the work this Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Michigan Theatre.

It’s also a live broadcast on 90.5 Classical...and it’s streamed at wkar.org.

April 2016 is a big month for live broadcasts on WKAR.  With MSU's College of Music presenting concerts nearly every day, WKAR joins in the fun by broadcasting /live streaming a program each week throughout the month.  This is the first month ever that WKAR and the College of Music have undertaken such a partnership.  90.5 FM and wkar.org will feature faculty, student and guest artists in everything from chamber ensembles to jazz to the MSU Symphony Orchestra.
