Anne Harrigan will take a spin, literally, with a company of professional aerialists and contortionists in “Magic of Circ and Symphony,” the next concert by the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra at 7:30 pm on Saturday, March 4. Most of the time, though, the maestra will fulfill her music director duties by conducting a program full of surprises. They include orchestral covers of songs by The Who and Metallica, as well as French music tinged with jazz by Milhaud and Ibert. She previewed the concert with Cara Lieurance

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.
