MSU Symphony plays Beethoven, "Kid," Adams

The MSU Symphony Orchestra’s next concert is Friday at Wharton Center. They’ll play Beethoven’s First Symphony, music from Aaron Copeland’s “Billy the Kid,” and “The Chairman Dances” by John Adams. Adams has described the piece as an “out take” from his opera, “Nixon in China.” WKAR’s Melissa Benmark spoke with MSU Director of Orchestras Kevin Noe about the music.
