West Circle Music Series – Chopin
October 24th, 2010 by insideout
Lansing and the surrounding area are fortunate to have Michigan State University – the whole community benefits from the wide variety of concerts, art shows, lectures and sporting events offered by the MSU. Many guests of our Eaton Rapids luxury inn come to town to see or participate in activities at the university.
This week, on Thursday, October 28, 2010, the MSU College of Music celebrates Two Hundred Years of Chopin, part of the West Circle Music Series. There is still space available at our Lansing area bed and breakfast, so give us a call and come to down for an evening of delightful piano music.
Pianists Panayis Lyras, Deborah Moriaty, Alan Nathan, Dereck Polischuk, Minsoo Sohn, George Vatchnadze and Ralph Votapek will take on Chopin. Expect to hear Opus 73 to the Barcarolle in F-sharp minor, Gondo in C major for Two Pianos, and Op. 60, among others. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., but a preview lecture by Carol Hess begins at 6:45 p.m.

Music at the Museum
March 2nd, 2010 by insideout
The Michigan History Center is devoted to preserving and displaying the history Michigan. Exhibits reach back to 14,000 years ago, when the First Peoples settled here, and continue through to the present. The museum is located inside the Michigan Library and Historical Center in downtown Lansing, less than thirty minutes from our Michigan bed and breakfast.
It is not only possible to wander through time at the Michigan Historical Museum; you may also treat yourself to the music of talented musicians from the Michigan State University College of Music, thanks to the Music at the Museum series.
A Klezmer Duo will take the stage on Sunday, March 7, 2010, at 1:30 pm. Refreshments will be served, and admission is free. Not only are you guaranteed a lovely afternoon of klezmer music, you will also support upcoming musicians and gain insight into what takes place at the College of Music.
The last concert of the series takes place Sunday, April 7, 2010, and will feature percussion.
Enjoy a romantic weekend (or two) at our Michigan inn, and treat yourself to delightful Sunday afternoons of history and music at the Michigan Historical Museum.
