The Stephen F. Austin faculty string quartet performed Mike McGowan’s three original string quartets with voice on February 11 in the Cole Concert Hall at SFA in Nacogdoches. McGowan is the director of instrumental music at Panola College.

The concert, titled “Mozart…& All That Jazz…,” was the world premiere of the jazz arrangements for voice and string quartet composed by McGowan.

Performers were Jennifer Dalmas, Chris Ayer, Melissa Rabb, Kimberly LaGraff, Evgeni Raychev, and student violinists Lamont Cline and Pavel Baez.

The concert, a joint presentation of the SFA College of Fine Arts and School of Music, was part of the Cole Performing Arts Series. Proceeds from the concert benefit the Isidor Saslav String Scholarship at SFA.
