The Lansing Symphony Orchestra starts a new season Friday night. It’s an all-George Gershwin concert, with well-known favorites "Rhapsody in Blue" and the "Concerto in F" as well as two lesser-known works.

Current State's Melissa Benmark speaks with conductor Timothy Muffitt and pianist Ralph Votapek, who’s going to be pretty busy at the concert.
