Emerging young musicians will present a free concert at the Showalter Memorial Music Festival at 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Northwest College.

The festival is named in memory of Victor Showalter, a former music professor at NWC who started the tradition in 1975. Now in its 45th year, the festival has expanded to include brass, woodwind, percussion, guitar, violin, piano and voice students in grades five through eight.

This year’s clinicians include Don Christman, Carisa French, Morgan Grover, Ruth Henderson, Craig Olsen, Rick Parmer and Kati Sears.
