PMF clarinetist David Bell will be joined by Patty Holland, the Festival’s bassoonist, Amy McCann, clarinet and Judith Jackson piano for the Feb. 10 concert.

The second concert on Feb. 17 features PMF trumpets Bruce Briney and Dan Grantham. They will be joined by pianist Judith Jackson and Greg Beem who is the organist at Shepherd of the Bay. The program features the music of Bernstein, Rachmaninoff, Prescott and a piece composed by the Festival’s principal trumpet, Terry Everson.
