All concerts are on Sunday at 4 pm and include a free reception where audience members are invited to meet the performers.

Gone with the Winds lets audience members experience wind instruments as theyíve never experienced them before, as SSC musicians bring to life music not originally written for their instrument! From the cool jazz licks of Beauty Mark!, initially written by Mark Turner for saxophone, now brought to life by Grant Randallís trombone, to gorgeous Debussy melodies first written for orchestra and now played by flute and piano, this concert will educate and entertain.

Donald ZookPerformers draw audience members into their thought process in choosing their piece, and explain why they feel the selection works for their instrument. This concert is truly one-of-a-kind, as some of these pieces are rarely performed on these wind instruments.

Pianist Sarah Troxler accompanies this eclectic mix of esoteric music.
