The Bent Frequency Duo Project will perform works for saxophone, percussion and electronics at the College of the Holy Cross on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at 8 p.m. in Brooks Concert Hall. Bent Frequency is a professional contemporary chamber music ensemble based in Atlanta, Ga., led by co-artistic directors Jan Berry Baker and Stuart Gerber. The concert is free and open to the public.

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.

Percussionist Stuart Gerber holds a D.M.A. from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM).
