Dear Bill:

Here's the second concert we're doing a week from Sunday:

I'm sure you can find some of the pictures of some of the composers. Incidentally, there are some changes in the program. The composers that we're not doing on this concert are Gary Powell Nash and Leo Edwards.

We are performing an arrangement of Scott Joplin's The Nonpareil for brass ensemble arranged by Jean-Francois Taillard, and David Obaniyi's Mariachi Warriors in their place. The list of the composers is on the annexed flyer, though we didn't include Carl Haywood, who is also on the program.
