The concert will take place Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.

"We're experimenting with concert format," says Professor Edberg, who serves as the festival's artistic director. "A lot of people think classical music is boring or stuffy, and we're out to change that. I challenged the audience last week, asking that each of us over 50 invite someone under 40 to attend. This is great music, played with energy and passion by first-rate professional musicians."Musical Note.jpg

The text notes that Strauss (pictured at top) is a former member of the DePauw School of Music faculty.
