From the icy depths of mother Russia, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra comes to the Wharton Center. The orchestra has played in Ann Arbor and Chicago and now will visit East Lansing tonight. Norwegian violin soloist Vilde Frang will accompany the performance, which features works by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev.
Frang says that, from a young age, it was obvious when she picked up the violin that her life was going to be channeled through the instrument. “The instrument is the tool for living for me,” she says.
