The concert, which concludes the recent European Song Tour, will feature the vocal chamber music of Schubert, regarded as the father of classical song.

Fellow members of the MSU School of Music will join Croy, including: Julie Gosswiller, piano; Gregory Young, clarinet; Sherry Linnerooth, horn and members of the MSU Horn Ensemble and Bozeman High student Emily Young on violin. MSU vocal students who will also perform with Croy include: Sarah Arlint, Sallie Dugger, Julie Lindberg, Bethany Smith, Casey Spawn, Ciara Wallace and Carson Yahvah.

Croy has served on the faculty of the MSU School of Music since 1990 and has been a soloist with the Bozeman Symphony, Intermountain Opera, 11th and Grant with Eric Funk television series and has been a finalist in numerous international and national competitions.

Gosswiller has collaborated on three CD projects with Croy including two recent releases, "What Ships Set Sail?" and "Partners through Song: Children's Literature and Classical Song."
