Thursday on Lake Effect

We learn about the creation of the Harmony test — a noninvasive prenatal test for birth defects. Then, as the Milwaukee Ballet prepares to open Ballet Russes Reimagined, we learn the century old Milwaukee connection to that Russian Company. Plus, we learn about Milwaukee singer-songwriter John Sieger’s conversations on songs.
