Good day and happy weekend.
Lansing Symphony Orchestra performs "Masterworks 4: Scottish Fantasy" Saturday featuring guest artist Rachel Barton Pine. City Pulse's Lawrence Cosentino shares his conversation with Pine in this article.
Local Scottish culture enthusiasts present a dinner dripping in Scottish tradition with Robert Burns' 257th Birthday Celebration on Saturday. The event honors Scotland’s most famous poet and author of the popular New Year's Eve anthem “Auld Lang Syne.” Master of ceremonies Chris Holman will introduce guests to some live Celtic music and a chicken cordon bleu dinner with a “wee bit o’ haggis,” of course. The evening also includes highland dance performances, and Lansing’s own Glen Erin Pipe Band will close out the night. Cash bar, door prizes and a raffle drawing. Tickets are available by phone or online, no tickets will be sold at the door. Saturday, 5 p.m. $45. Eagle Eye Golf Club & Banquet Center, 15500 Chandler Road, Bath. (517) 256-5348, glenerinpipeband.com.
