Its five musicians, Emily Snyder, oboe; Brooke Emery, clarinet; Jeremy Koch, saxophone; John Romano, bass clarinet; Eddie Sanders, bassoon, are also members of the US Air Force Band, where they first met. A pre-concert talk with the composers, moderated by Baltimore’s well-known trombonist David Fetter, will start the evening. A wine reception with the performers and composers will follow the concert. The program includes works by Garth Baxter, David Fetter, Rahilia Hasanova, Ljiljana Jovanovic, Harriet Katz, Keith Kramer, George Spicka and Hollis Thoms.
