Triple treat or triple threat? Just after noon, I speak with Macon Symphony music director Adrian Gnam about Saturday's MSO program, "Triple Treat," which will be highlighted by the multitalented Janice Martin
who sings and plays piano and plays violin and arranges. Saturday at Macon's Grand Opera House she does all four of those in her Paganini Mania Concerto.

On Midday Music, in addition to rep from that Macon concert, we sample pieces to be performed by the Augusta Choral Society (Brahms, Friday), Atlanta Symphony (Gershwin and Ravel, through Saturday) and Georgia Philharmonic (Ippolitov and Barber, Saturday in Roswell). Tomorrow on GPB: the return of Alan Cooke's Friday requests edition of Midday Music!
