"I have invited the Great Basin Street Band to share our concert so that our students can experience 'sitting in' with a really great professional band. The program will include a lot of interaction between the professional and student musicians," Call said.

Members of the Great Basin Street Band include Jerry Floor, clarinet; Reed LeCheminant, trumpet; Shannon Roberts, trombone; Keven Johansen, banjo and guitar; Bob Bailey, piano; and Jan Hyde, drums.
