One of classical music’s most famous contemporary musicians is coming to East Lansing. Last May, violinist Joshua Bell was named to succeed Sir Neville Marriner as music director of the Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields. Bell and the academy will perform at Michigan State University’s Wharton Center this Saturday on one leg of their first tour together.
WKAR’s Jody Knol recently spoke with Joshua Bell and reminded him of the lengths he went to in order to make his last concert at Wharton Center back in the winter of 2009.
Michigan State University is ready to start work on a new anaerobic digester. The system will use microorganisms to turn tons of manure and food waste into electricity for some MSU buildings south of the main campus.
