June 12: Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra. Highlights from Bizet’s Carmen: The characters are true-to-life with Don José, the humble corporal; Carmen, the enchantress; and Escamillo, the dashing bullfighter forming the love triangle. Bizet’s music moves the drama forward with brilliantly composed intermezzos and preludes that set the scenes and provide programmatic transitions. With Carmen, Bizet composed a genuine masterpiece with its melodic invention, orchestration, and harmonic resourcefulness. The performance is in Petoskey at the John M. Hall Auditorium. 231.487.0010.
June 16: Jazz at Sunset.
