Our honored guest, Lewis Sheridan Hughes, will perform selected readings from the works of Langston Hughes for Coleman’s Visions of Langston. We are pleased to have Jennifer Moore join us on piano while Tim Mount takes a “sabbatical” in the far reaches of Northern Canada.  Filling out the musical personnel are Robin Cameron-Phillips, flute and piccolo; Janice Kyle, oboe; Janine Scherline, clarinet; Patricia McCarty, viola; Matt Dunne, bass; and Michael Lewandowski, drums.
