Jazz Composition Workshop with Josh Lawrence:  Channel your inner Miles Davis at Thursday's Jazz Residency artist Josh Lawrence's workshop on jazz composition and performance.  Jazz trumpeter Lawrence, who teaches at Drexel and University of the Arts, is joined by several musicians to crowd-compose some swinging music.  You may not leave with "Giant Steps" on your compositional resume, but it's a definite baby step toward creative bliss.  Thursday, February 27, 6 p.m., free, Kimmel Center, 1500 Walnut St.

Philadelphia Orchestra TuneIN: Philadelphia Orchestra debuts its new TuneIN series, a light-hearted variation on the orchestra's conventional repertoire,  this Thursday at the Kimmel Center. This abbreviated 75-minute concert is perfect for music lovers who prefer a little less pomp, given the circumstances. Guest performances include pianist Eric La Sage and dance troupe Philadanco. The earlier show and casual dress code should attract families and sunny-day classicists, and the happy-hour-priced drinks should draw the rest. Thursday, February 27, 6:30 p.m., $45, The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, 1500 Walnut Street
