Music and Art in Lansing

January 19th, 2010 by insideout

Ready to be spontaneous? There are two very good reasons to head to our Lansing area inn this weekend. The first is the Lansing Symphony Orchestra. The second is American Modernism 1920s-1940s, at the Kresge Art Museum. Give us a call now, then pack your favorite dress clothes and head our way.

The third in a series of MasterWorks Concerts will take place Saturday, January 23, 2010, at 8pm. Timothy Muffitt will lead the orchestra through works by Mendelssohn, Strauss and Brahms. Ilya Kaler on Violin and Amit Peled on Violoncello will round out this magnificent performance by the Lansing Symphony Orchestra at the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts.

After a delicious breakfast and lazy morning at our elegant Lansing bed and breakfast, spend Sunday afternoon at the Kresge Art Museum. American Modernism, 1920s-1940s is a fascinating exhibit that runs through March 14, 2010. Pieces by Hananiah Harari, Arthur Dove, Paul Kelpe, Frank Llyod Wright, and many other artists from that epoch will astound you. This period in American art is often overlooked because it is difficult to neatly categorize and define it. What do you make of it?

If you like what you see on Sunday, extend your weekend and benefit from the Gallery Walk of the American Modernism exhibit at noon on Monday. Doing so will give you an excellent excuse to have one more meal at our Lansing restaurant/pub.
