A second quartet will present “Concertino” by Marcel Poot, “July” by Michael Torke and the Sonata, op. 17, no. 8 in B-flat major by Johann Christian Bach.

The Saturday concert will feature a Woodwind Chamber Night showcase. Several woodwind quintets and trios, coached by BYU faculty members, will perform standard woodwind chamber music.
