Midday Music Thursday 11/13/08

Are you near Columbus, Macon, Eatonton, Morrow, Atlanta, Lookout Mountain, LaGrange, Auburn or Athens? There's high-caliber musicmaking close by, and soon. See details and support live classical music in your community.

The highlight of today's Midday Music is a novelty - it's Margaret Brouwer's percussion concerto Aurolucent Circles from 2002, written for and performed by Evelyn Glennie.

Friday's Midday Music will be a requests day with Alan Cooke in Augusta. See you Monday.
