The Lansing Symphony Orchestra played its final concert of the season last week at MSU’s Wharton Center. Music director Timothy Muffitt took a few minutes to speak with WKAR’s Melissa Benmark about the lineup for next season. One of the concerts they talked about was built around the story of composer Antonin Dvorak’s visit to America.
A number of professional sports in America trace their roots to the school playground. Basketball, baseball, football and even hockey. But can you make a career out of skipping rope? As it turns out...yes.
Adrienn Banhegyi began her jump rope career growing up in Hungary. She won three world titles before auditioning for the acclaimed touring company, “Cirque du Soleil.” She’ll perform with the company next week in East Lansing, when Cirque du Soleil presents its show “Quidam."
WKAR’s Kevin Lavery asked Banhegyi to explain the show’s storyline.
