The fourth concert features BONJ favorite Stanley Alexandrowicz, performing contemporary works for classical guitar. His performance includes the World Premiere of Canti di Venezia, 3 movements composed by Maestro Robert W. Butts, inspired by his time in Venice.
 
The festival concludes with the wonderful Evergreen Violin Trio (Emily James, Sara d'Sa, and Amelia Muccia). The trio will play Baroque dances by Handel, Purcell, Muffatt, and Haydn; traditional folk songs especially arranged for them such as Greensleeves, Devil's Dream, and Song of the Volga Boatmen; and their very own beautiful arrangement of George Gershwin's Summertime.
