NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - The Piney Woods Camerata, a conductor-less string ensemble led by the Stephen F. Austin State University string faculty, will present the third concert of its inaugural series at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.

Collaborating with violinist Jennifer Dalmas, cellist Evgeni Raychev and violist Gene H. Moon will be "talented high school string players from around the region," said Raychev.

"We are pleased to be sharing the stage with these musicians," Raychev continued. "One of our missions is to provide a high standard of quality music to the East Texas community through collaboration between SFA faculty and students."

The program includes compositions by W.A. Mozart and Sir Edward Elgar. The featured work will be Arcangelo Corelli's "Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 3" as a part of the group's mission to perform all 12 concerti grossi of the Italian composer and violin virtuoso before the 300th anniversary of his death in 2013.

The concert is a joint presentation of the SFA College of Fine Arts and School of Music.

Cole Concert Hall is located at 2210 Alumni Dr.
