Butts and young Newark composer Elijah Souels and Lift Every Voice and Sing co-composed by Elijah and Saki Uetsuhara with a special solo violin part performed by Héctor Falcón, violinist with the New Jersey Symphony. Also joining will be pianist Serafina Taylor.

The concert also marks a collaboration with the famed New York Classical Music Society. NYCMS artists appearing and performing music of Mozart, Offenbach, and Puccini will be pianist Lynn Czae, soprano Seunghee Chaand cellist Liz Seungah Hong.

Also appearing to perform the solo parts on Antonio Vivaldi's popular Concerto for 3 Violins will be the popular Evergreen Violin Trio: Emily James, Sara D'Sa, and Amelia Muccia.
