Smith will begin the performance by playing Jean-Michel Damase’s “Automne” followed by the Sonata No. 1 for Bassoon and Piano by Laurence Lowe. After a brief intermission, he’ll perform “Soliloquy” by Bernard Garfield and Eric Ewazen’s “Mosaics.”

During the performance, Smith will be accompanied by Jeffrey Shumway on piano, April Clayton on flute and Ron Brough on marimba.
