SYMPHONIES IN MICHIGAN and around the country have universally adopted “making classical music more accessible” as a talking point in their marketing efforts lately. Few, though, have backed up their statements to the extent that West Michigan Symphony has over the past year. From ultra low-cost tickets to an 80-minute concert explain- ing the entire history of classical music, WMS and conductor Scott Speck have


tried to strip away all the ridiculous trappings that go along with most classical performances in order to make it comfortable and relevant – without dumbing it down. This month’s Beethoven & Blue Jeans performance is no exception. The symphony’s musicians will trade tuxes for denim, and the casual affair will feature Beethoven’s lively 7th


and Rossini’s mischievous Overture to The


Thieving Magpie. The performance also features something pretty unique for a local symphony: the Michigan premiere of a work by perhaps America’s hottest composer – Grammy and Pulitzer winner Jennifer Higdon – that’s being performed by eighth blackbird, a Chicago chamber group with great technical chops, a fondness for indie music and a Grammy of its own. The WMS co- commissioned the piece, called On a Wire, with the symphonies in Atlanta, Toronto, Cleveland and a handful of other cities. Tickets begin at $5 for students and $10 for others.
