Performers are coming from San Francisco, Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., and North Carolina, to present a free concert at Sheridan College.

The program concludes with a performance of an original composition by Dr. Mark Bergman, director of strings at Sheridan College, entitled “Steampunk Baroque.” In the spirit of “L’Apotheose de Lully,” this work synthesizes the diverse aesthetics of European baroque music, punk rock and 19th century art songs.
