Join the Michigan Philharmonic for its Tchaikovsky Spectacular 2 p.m. Sunday, March 18, at First United Methodist Church in Plymouth. With a big orchestra, big space, and big sound, the event also features Grammy nominated guest composer Zhou Tian and his moving piece, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers. Inspired by a Chinese proverb, Tian’s piece uses a “Western symphony orchestra to convey a sense of spiritual bliss — the balance between Western and Eastern culture embodying a universal sense of music.” A professor at Michigan State University, Tian is a world-class local talent. Another highlight of this concert is Michigan Phil Pianist Patrick Johnson on Estruscan Concerto for Piano and Chamber Orchestra by Peggy Glanville-Hicks, a trailblazer in American contemporary music. This concerto is a musical tribute to the Italian countryside. Rounding out this extraordinary concert is Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Symphony No. 4.
