Joe Brent and Sara Caswell will be coming to DPU for a free Wednesday, Feb. 26 performance in the Performing Arts Series.

DePauw University's Performing Arts Series will present Joe Brent, a 1997 graduate of DePauw on mandolin, and Sara Caswell, violin, in a Wednesday, Feb. 26 concert.

The program, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Thompson Recital Hall, located within the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts.

Brent and Caswell will also give a talk on music entrepreneurship earlier that day at 4 p.m. in room 1029 of the Green Center. It too is free and open to all.

Combining elements of both older and contemporary classical music with jazz, rock, traditional and other genres, the New York-based duo deliver a truly eclectic sound.

Brent, who was an honor scholar and music composition major as an undergraduate, is an experienced performer and is a faculty member at Mannes College, the New School for Music in New York City.

Violinist Caswell was recognized twice in recent years as the "top jazz violinist" in the annual poll of JazzTimes readers.

She graduated from Indiana University with a degree in violin performance and jazz studies and has released two solo CDs as well as an album with her vocalist sister, Rachel Caswell.
