Members of Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Faculty perform great vocal jazz alongside the vocal joys of Debussy, chamber works for flute trio, a sonata for viola, and a woodwind sextet in “A Musical Mélange,” on Friday, March 9, 2018, at 7:30 pm. The concert, the third of four presentations on the 2017-2018 Faculty Concert Series, takes place in the School’s Behrens Bergman Auditorium, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale.
