The ensembles will perform with Central alumnus and saxophonist James Skretta, who is completing his doctorate in saxophone performance at the University of Iowa. Guest performers from Merida, Yucatan, will be Maestro Luis Luna, conductor of the Yucatan Youth Symphonic Band, and three very talented student members: clarinetist Alejandro Chi GonzŠlez, percussionist Edoardo Ceballos and saxophonist Maria Josť Chi GonzŠlez.†
