The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is going on a road trip to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The love affair between the MSO and UW-Whitewater, in which the orchestra provides outstanding classical music outside its usual haunts, goes back 18 years. Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong will lead the MSO, featuring Scott Tisdel on cello, in Mendelssohn's mighty Hebrides overture. The overture, completed in 1830, was also known as Fingal's Cave. It's a compact composition, meant to stand alone in performance despite its designation as an overture. Also included in this concert are works by Dvorak and a George M. Cohan tune. The concert will be held 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 29, at the Young Auditorium, 930 W. Main St., Whitewater.

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
