Oct. 29-30 The Plano Symphony Orchestra offers a pair of concerts this weekend. At 8 p.m. on Saturday night, enjoy Singin' in the Rain, a multimedia presentation with conductor Hector Guzman and host Patricia Kelly. While most people think of dance when they think of Gene Kelly, music - and, particularly, American popular song - was central to his work. It influenced him, inspired him, and, in many ways, defined him. He worked closely with composers, arrangers and musicians and held them in the highest regard, knowing it was they who made his creations possible. This spectacular multimedia presentation will be introduced by Kelly's widow and biographer, Patricia Ward Kelly. On Sunday afternoon, join the Plano Symphony for an afternoon of family fun entertainment with a Spooky Symphony. Kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume, and come early at 2:15 p.m. for activities in the Eisemann Center lobby! The Eisemann Center is located at 2351 Performance Drive. Information:
