In honor of Gian Carlo Menotti’s 100th birthday, Terwilliger, Eller and Kompass will perform his “Trio” for violin, clarinet and piano. Music of the Baroque period will also be featured as “Sonata No. 4 in C Major, BWV 1033” by J. S. Bach and will be performed by Parker-Harley, Jesselson and Berg. The second half of the program will feature Ligon, Butterfield and friends playing a couple sets of jazz to close out an afternoon of great music and food.
