The concert features the department’s very own Dr. David Sutanto, Professor of Piano, joined by guest artists Violinist Pablo Donatti and Clarinetist Ivan Petruzziello.

The free performance begins at 7:30 p.m. with very limited seating (45 seats) with required registration to attend in-person. No walk-ins will be permitted, and attendees must follow DMC protocols including social distancing. The College is currently in Phase 3 of its Return-to-Campus Plan.
