NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts and School of Music will present the Piney Woods Camerata at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 16, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.

This will be the fourth concert presented by the conductor-less ensemble created in 2007. Performers for this concert include SFA string students and faculty members Jennifer Dalmas, violin; Christina Guenther, flute; Gene H. Moon, viola; and Evgeni Raychev, cello.

The program also includes works by some well-known composers whose birth anniversaries are celebrated this year: Henry Purcell (300 years), George Frideric Handel (250 years) and Joseph Haydn (200 years).
