The Newman University instrumental ensemble will present its spring concert, “Peace, Love & Rock & Roll,” at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 14, in the De Mattias Fine Arts Center Performance Hall. The concert is free and open to the public.

The ensemble will perform pieces made popular in the ’60s and ’70s with featured soloists throughout.

Cindy Thompson, instrument ensemble director, said the Newman ensemble is full of talent and she’s excited to let that talent shine.

β€œAll three of my graduating seniors will be featured β€” Claire Setter on the piano, Laura Shine on the alto sax and Megan Anderson will be showing off her fiddling skills during a performance of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” with guest narrator Newman sophomore Elijah Spellman-Sac.

In addition, Newman senior and Troubadours member Taylore Rose will be singing “Moon River” as a featured soloist during the concert.

The ensemble performs two concerts per academic year β€” fall and spring β€” and will also do the opening set of the Dec. 2 Christmas Chorale concert.
