LAWRENCE - The University of Kansas School of Music is pleased to announce the KU Edwards Campus Second Mondays Series, which will kick off Monday, Sept. 14 with Toutes les choses françaises! (All Things French).

The concert features Ellen Sommer, piano; Sarah Frisof, flute; and KU School of Music dean, Robert Walzel, clarinet. The program features a potpourri of delights by French composers including renowned masters Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel, as well as virtuosic tours de force by the less well known 19th Century clarinetist Paul Jeanjean.
