Wharton Center welcomes the British Broadcasting Corporation, or BBC, Concert Orchestra 7: 30 p.m. Thursday.

As the first stop on their U.S. tour, BBC Concert Orchestra will perform under conductor Keith Lockhart.

The BBC Concert Orchestra holds the title of the world’s longest-running live music program on the radio with British Broadcasting Radio 2 for their performance on the show “Friday Night is Music Night.”

Bob Hoffman, public relations manager at Wharton, is excited East Lansing residents have the chance to witness a group of classical-music greats. They are “one of the world’s most respected orchestras,” he said.
