The fifth piece to be premiered, “Oh, Popeye!” was composed by Chris Arrell, assistant professor of music at the College.

As a soloist and chamber musician, she has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, France, Scotland, England, Ukraine, Switzerland, Austria and the Czech Republic, and regularly performs with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Grant Park Orchestra, and Atlanta Opera. Jan is assistant professor of saxophone at Georgia State University, and is a Selmer Paris and Vandoren performing artist.
