For Valentine's Day weekend, Hill Auditorium presents an artist who knows how to romance the strings. Sometimes referred to as the "power of the violin," Josh Bell performs classical music with a swooning gusto. His 2012 tour roused the kind of reaction from audiences that one expects from an arena rock show, not a classical recital. The afternoon's program includes work by Beethoven, Stravinski and Tartini.

Sunday, February 16, 4pm. $80-16. Hill Auditorium, 825 N. University Ave. 734-763-3333. ums.org
