Posted on: February 28, 2013

In Wednesday’s (2/27) Lansing City Pulse (Michigan), Dylan Sowle writes, “Will ‘Billie Jean’ or ‘Angie’ get a chance to waft down the Grand River in downtown Lansing? The Lansing Symphony Orchestra is getting a head start on its summer concert in the park this year by asking you to choose what music you want to hear. The orchestra opens public voting today to decide on the music for their Adado Riverfront Park concert on June 5, starting Lansing’s 20th annual free Concert In the Park series. The choices consist of songs by Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones or a medley of ‘80s tunes. Voting is unlimited and can be done at the orchestra’s website, lansingsymphony.org. Marketing director Rachel Santorelli said the symphony wanted to make a more interesting concert by giving the audience a crucial role in the show. … The symphony will play alongside one of several outside groups, depending on which program is selected. The deadline is April 8.”
