Outstanding performers from the Showalter Memorial Music Festival present a free concert at 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Northwest College in Powell.

This year’s clinicians are Don Christman, Carisa French, Morgan Grover, Ruth Henderson, Lynell Kruckeberg, Elisa Olson, Rick Parmer and Katie Sears.
