Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this cloudy Thursday.

The Circulo Trio returns to the historic Turner-Dodge House today for the Music at the Mansion concert series. Founded in 2015 at Michigan State University, Circulo Trio has presented concerts throughout the U.S., Canada and Thailand. The trio — violinist Hanye Kim, clarinetist Tanyawat Dilokkunanant and pianist Zhao Wang — is joined Thursday by guests Daniela Diaz on violin, Nicholas R. Mowry on viola and Jinhyun Kim on cello. “To have this much talent at what is basically a ‘house concert’ is what we strive for,” said Michelle Reurink, series coordinator and past president of the Friends of Turner-Dodge House. 7 p.m. $10. Turner-Dodge House & Heritage Center, 100 E. North St., Lansing.

Mid Michigan Family Theatre takes on a classic children’s story in its latest production. “Heidi,” adapted from Johanna Spyri’s 1881 novel, tells the story of a young orphan in Switzerland being cared for by her grandfather. Lucille Miller’s adaptation follows the book closely. Part of the proceeds from Thursday’s show benefit 2/42 Community Church’s upcoming mission trip to Haiti. 7 p.m. $7/$5 students and seniors. 2/42 Community Building, 2630 Bennett Road, Okemos. (517) 339-2145, facebook.com/midmichiganfamilytheatre.
