Soloists include Steve Hubbard on trumpet, Dr. Sam Hood on flute, Rogerio Nunes on violin, and Jonathan Wall, Elizabeth Cortes and Makala James on vocals. Trent Muse will perform Boyd's Piano Suite which was composed for Muse's junior recital. Dr. Meg Griffith will premiere Variations on Carnival of Venice on her flute. This was composed just for her.
There will be a wide variety of music, sacred to romantic to engagingly modern. Several will be the premieres, including a finale written for this concert for violin and two flutes.
