  1. And…the fantastic Jennifer Nichols for the Extension Room recital. I also found it a little strange that the press release did not mention any of the performers – yet their headshots appear in the visuals.

  2. We will be announcing more info as we put tickets on sale, but you are correct so far on all three artists for the first program. Steven Philcox will be playing.

    In February Phil Addis and Emily Hamper will be performing.

    Thanks for covering the announcement!
