The School of American Music (SAM) will present “Dreams and Visions,” an oboe, viola and piano program featuring Oboist Jennet Ingle, on Friday, February 28, 7pm EST at the Converge Community Church in New Buffalo. The concert, part of SAM’s Free Family Concert Series, will feature the world premiere of a trio, Visions and Dreams, by Marjorie Rusche.
The program is a collaboration between SAM and the Michigan City Chamber Music Festival (MCCMF), and will be presented a second time on Saturday, February 29, 3pm CST at the First Presbyterian Church in Michigan City as part of MCCMF’s Cookies, Coffee and Classics Series.
