The Western Michigan University Symphony Orchestra will offer a live concert called "Taking Flight" in Miller Auditorium for the first time in two years at 8 pm Saturday, Oct 9.


It features the 2021 Stulberg Silver Medalist Sean Yu, who will play the same work he played at the competition: Prokofiev's Sinfonia Concertante.  Conductor and music director Andrew Koehler joined Cara Lieurance to talk about the virtuosic work for cello and orchestra. He also previews Lera Auerbach's Icarus and Igor Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.
