NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Proceeds from an upcoming concert slated for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, in Cole Concert Hall on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University will benefit the Isidor Saslav String Scholarship at SFA.

"Coleidoscope" is a series of collaborative chamber music faculty concerts honoring the SFA School of Music's invaluable patrons, Ed and Gwen Cole, according to Evgeni Raychev, cellist and SFA music faculty member.

"In fact, this concert could be regarded as a gesture of gratitude to the music patrons in our area," Raychev said.

The concert, titled "Mozart … & all that jazz …" will feature compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and will premiere jazz arrangements by Mike McGowan for voice and string quartet, Raychev said.

Jennifer Dalmas, Chris Ayer, Melissa Nabb, Kimberly LaGraff, Raychev and student violinists Lamont Cline of Cypress and Pavel Baez of Pasadena will collaborate for the event.

The concert is a joint presentation of the SFA College of Fine Arts and School of Music and is part of the Cole Performing Arts Series. Cole Concert Hall is located in the Tom and Peggy Wright Music Building, 2210 Alumni Drive.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students. For tickets or more information, visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu or call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407.
