The students performing are selected by applied music faculty members. Vocal performers include bass-baritone John Mburu, mezzo-sopranos Amanda Phillips and Cherish Varlack, and sopranos Shana Chrisley, Ivy Roberts, and Hannah Sims.

Instrumental performers include guitarists Josh Gardner and Cordelia Grace, marimbist Alex Wingo, oboist Danae Powers, pianist Emma Motok, saxophonists Timothy Ferguson and Jalil Muhammad, trumpeter Jonathan Bishop, tubist Jonathan Jarman, and violinist Kristi Edwards.     

The students will perform works by Sergio Assad, Georges Bizet, Alfred Desenclos, Vittorio Giannini, and Jule Styne, among others.

“We have some incredibly gifted musicians here at Lee and I am thrilled for our community to be able to experience the results of their diligent work over the past several years,” said Dr. Warner.

This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
