Inspired by the music performed at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011, the program includes works by English greats William Walton, Edward Elgar, and Gerald Finzi, and features the Symphony No. 7 of Beethoven as its centerpiece. With her usual vivacity, Ms. Harrigan goes to the heart of the music to see what makes it tick. She describes the choral contributions of Ars Voce and the Battle Creek Boychoir, and mentions a special guest appearing in the finale.
