Hansen had a one-year appointment at UW-Green Bay in 2006-07. He has a Master of Music in clarinet performance from the University of Kentucky where he studied with former UW-Green Bay faculty member Scott Wright. Severtson formerly taught at Macalaster College in St. Paul and Luther College in Iowa. His Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance is from the University of Minnesota.

The three will perform together on O'Grady's Trio Whimsico for Piano, Clarinet and Trumpet.

Gaines and Severtson will present 20th century American composer Kent Kennan's Sonata for Trumpet and Piano. Hansen will perform the "Abyss of Birds" for solo clarinet from Oliver Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time.

Also on the program, Gaines will be featured on "Da Tempeste," Cleopatra's aria from G. F.
