7:30 pm Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center: Brandenburg Concertos
Few musical works are as loved – and as rarely performed together – as the Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach. The six concertos, each written with its own voice, fit together remarkably well. They have proven their extraordinary power to move, exhilarate, delight and captivate audiences for over 250 years. Famous for their lightness of touch and ability to communicate the different voices in the concertos, the Chamber Music Society’s performance of them has become a tradition. Tickets starting from $22 (more)

7:30 pm A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder
Getting away with murder can be so much fun...and there’s no better proof than the knock-’em-dead hit show that’s earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award® for BEST MUSICAL – A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder! As one most gentlemanly NPR critic put it, “I’VE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD AT A BROADWAY MUSICAL!” Gentleman’s Guide tells the story of Monty, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by – you guessed it – eliminating the eight relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress, his fiance?e and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance...and be done in time for tea. The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY.” For those who don’t mind a little comedic murder, ages 10 and up. East Lansing engagement is welcomed by BZEMS Group at Merrill Lynch; and Portnoy and Tu, DDS, PC. Times Vary Tickets from $41 (more)
