The concert at 4 p.m. will feature guest violin soloist Carla Trynchuk.

Originally from Canada, Trynchuk has performed as soloist with orchestras and in recitals throughout North America and in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

A graduate of the Juilliard School of Music in New York, Trynchuk is a professor of music and director of the string program at Andrews University in Michigan.

The audience can expect to hear Aethelinda by Jeffrey S. Bishop, Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 by Edvard Grieg, Hungarian Dances Nos. 5 and 6 by Johannes Brahms, and Concerto for Violin and Orchestra by Jean Sibelius.

The concert is part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days, an annual global event affirming the ideals of tolerance, friendship, and shared humanity, inspired by the life and work of journalist and musician Daniel Pearl. It also celebrates National Arts and Humanities Month, a coast-to-coast collective celebration of culture in America.
