The College of Western Idaho (CWI) will welcome the community to its Nampa Campus for a unique musical experience this spring, as the CWI Art Department’s Visiting Artist Program presents a free public concert. CWI will welcome the renowned College of Idaho Langroise Trio to campus:

Friday – April 25
7 p.m.
Nampa Campus Academic Building

The group will be performing the music of Beethoven and Idaho composer Jim Cockey. The free concert is made possible thanks to a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, which is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.  

The CWI Visiting Artist Program is in its third year of existence and features professional artists of state, regional, and national acclaim who visit the College throughout the year for public performances, lectures, and workshops. This event marks the first Visiting Artist Program concert.  

"We are thrilled to have the Langroise Trio as our inaugural visiting performing artists,” says CWI Visual and Performing Arts Department Chair, Brenda Fisher. “This is a great way for us to join efforts with the College of Idaho and provide an open and free classical music event for our community."

The College of Idaho Langroise Trio was established in 1991 with a gift from arts patron Gladys Langroise. The group has performed across the United States, including concerts at the Kennedy Center. Artists-in-Residence at The College of Idaho, the Langroise Trio plays an important role in arts education by providing students, educators and professional musicians with the broad education, specialized skills, and diversified experience they will need to become versatile music leaders who will shape our musical and cultural future. The Trio’s mission is to create a culture of mastery through the study of violin, viola, and cello; providing instruction and performance of the highest standard.
