An 11-member instrumental ensemble composed of a string octet, a piccolo trumpet, an oboe, and an organ played by professional musicians will join the vocalists. Rebecca Schleneger will serve as concertmaster. The performers will cover selections by Antonio Vivaldi, one of the great Baroque composers who influenced Bach, and the concert will end with two spirituals. OPSU Music Instructor Joel Garber said that the two vocal groups have put in many hours of rehearsal since they began in January and would like to thank JiSook Park for her accompaniment at those rehearsals.

The concert will last approximately 45 minutes and everyone is invited to savor the music at this special event.
