Tonight's Birds On A Wire concert shines a light on just how much modern, avant-garde music is being created around us. Western Michigan University professor of composition/theory David Colson says performing in a modern music ensemble helps students improve their musicianship in a variety of ways. Lisa Coons, professor of composition, describes her new work, Singing Wall, which is performed on a musical sculpture she designed and constructed with Steven Pierce. Cara Lieurance also talks to pianist Lori Sims about the earliest work on the program, "Regard de l’Esprit de joie," from Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus (1944).

Rather than a concerto soloist, the next Battle Creek Symphony concert will showcase a theater company as its featured guest. The What A Do Theatre will fill the roles of the fictional character, Don Juan, and the true-life composer, Richard Strauss, whose 1889 Don Juan was a work that cemented his reputation.


The Arcadia Winds are a group of accomplished amateur musicians who like to challenge themselves with great works. On the opening of their fourth season at the Ladies Library of Kalamazoo, the pieces are by Johannes Brahms, Darius Milhaud, and Emile Bernard. Cara Lieurance spoke with musicians Ron Chase and Barbara Hong, and Ladies Library Association representative Paula Jamison, for a preview of the concert.
