Kalamazoo Junior Symphony Orchestra music director Andrew Koehler will lead a program called "Wanderlust" at 4 pm Sunday, Nov 7 at Chenery Auditorium, in which each half begins with an American work and ends in another country. 

Flutist Emma Temple, winner of the 2020 KJSO Concerto Competition, will also perform her competition piece with the group. They talk to Cara Lieurance about the concert, and plans for the orchestra to tour Spain and Portugal in 2022. It's the KJSO's first tour since visiting South Africa in 2018.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
