Project Trio to perform at Concordia College

Group will be guest clinicians at Honor Band Festival

Project Trio, a dynamic, innovative group of musicians featuring double bass, flute, and saxophone, will bring their energetic blend of classical, jazz, hip-hop and world music influences to Concordia College in an upcoming concert.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, in Christiansen Recital Hall, with an opening selection from Concordia faculty ensemble the Excelsior! Trio. A reception with the guest artists will follow the performance in the Hvidsten Hall of Music.

The three members of Project Trio, based in New York, will also serve as guest clinicians for Concordia’s annual High School Honor Band Festival, offering the students involved master classes on improvisation as well as saxophone, flute, and low string performance.

The Excelsior! Trio is composed of Jay Hershberger, piano professor, Deb Harris, associate professor of flute, and Russ Peterson, associate professor of saxophone and bassoon. The three began collaborating in 2009 and have since performed a variety of music not just locally, but internationally.

Concordia faculty, staff and their family members, and Concordia students are admitted free with ID at the door. Tickets are $22 for adult general admission and $10 for students under 18. Tickets are available online at or by calling 218.299.4366.
