A performance of professional Tri-City musicians will feature opera, Broadway and jazz tunes performed on violin, cello, guitar, trumpet and in song.
The free show is March 16 when the Artists in Concert event gets under way at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 515 S. Union St. in Kennewick. Showtime is 7 p.m.
Carisa and Phillip Simpson of the Tri-Cities will lead the event, which also includes pianist Patti Robertson, singer Megan Johnson, violinist Lisa Sorensen, cellist and singer Michelle Cameron and the Mid-Columbia Brass Quintet.
"I think it is just nice to get people together to play and hear quality music, and it's a fun concert with a lot of different styles to please everyone," Carisa Simpson said. "We have so many talented performers playing an amazing program, and we would like people to come and be our audience and share the spirit of music.
"We don't need to charge for that."
The Simpsons live in the Tri-Cities, though Carisa sings with the Portland Opera. Her husband is a member of the Mid-Columbia Symphony, CBC Jazz Orchestra and the Mid-Columbia Brass Quintet.
Robertson is a well-known Kennewick piano teacher, and Johnson is the music director at Hanford High, who performs regularly in community theater.
Sorensen is a member of the Mid-Columbia Symphony, and Cameron also has been a featured musician with the symphony.
The Brass Quintet members include Randy Hubbs, John Owen, Kevin Glenn, Bob Swoboda and Phillip Simpson.
