The Poplar Wind Trio, an exciting, innovative ensemble dedicated to the performance of new music and to community engagement, will give a concert on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Daehler-Kitchin Auditorium in Marquis Hall. The trio will perform works by Debussy, Muczynski, Saint-Saens, Higdon, Schoenberg and Larsen. The concert is free and open to the public.

The group was formed in 2015 while Delara Hashemi, Amelia Smith and Perry Mears were graduate students at the University of Memphis. Since the group's inception, they have been actively involved in providing concerts at the St. Jude Target House. In addition to their work as an ensemble, they each maintain active individual performing careers.
