Trinity Episcopal Church on Sunday will host a special edition of “Music at Trinity,” its annual Young Artists Showcase, featuring the junior division of Santa Barbara’s vast musical talent pool.

The program and artists are as follows: Georg Philipp Telemann’s Sonata in c-minor, TWV 42:c2, performed by three Dos Pueblos High School ninth-graders called “Trio Primavera” (Ilana Shapiro, flute; Maya Reese, violin; and Sara Muir, cello); Frédéric Chopin’s “Etude in Ab-Major, from Trois nouvelles études (1839) and the first movement “Allegro” from Wolfgang Mozart’s Piano Sonata in Bb-Major, K. 570 (1789), played by pianist Vivian Wang, in the ninth grade at Oak Grove School in Ojai; Johannes Brahms’ Rhapsody in g-minor, Opus 79, No.2 (1879), played by Savannah Hodson, a junior at San Marcos High School; Roger Quilter’s Three Songs, Opus 1 (ca1904) and Thomas Joyce’s “When to the Sessions of Sweet Silent Thought,” sung by tenor Geoffrey Lambeth, a senior at San Marcos High, with Thomas Joyce, composer and Trinity’s music minister, on piano; Arthur Honegger’s La Danse de la Chèvre (The Goat Dance) for Solo Flute, 1921, H 39 with Marissa Condie, a home-schooled 11th-grader; Eric Ewazen’s “The Resplendent Quetzal,” from A Suite from the Cloud Forest (1992) performed by pianists Elizabeth and Eliana Van Renterghem, homeschhooled 11th-graders; and the fourth movement “Allegro con brio” from Serge Prokofieff​’s Sonata in D Major for Flute and Piano, Opus 94 (1943), played by Ilana Shapiro, flute, with the support of pianist Anne Weger.

In the credit-where-credit-is-due department, Trio Primavera is coached by Linda Holland; Vivian Wang and Savannah Hodson are students of Egle Januleviciute; Geoffrey Lambeth is a student of Carolyn Teraoka-Brady; Marissa Condie studies flute with Andrea Di Maggio; and the Van Renterghem sisters study piano with Neil Di Maggio.

The concert begins at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Trinity Church, 1500 State St. in downtown Santa Barbara. The performance is free, although those who find themselves with a surplus of lucre and have an inclination to chip in a contribution, are certainly encouraged to do so.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
