Eastern Mennonite University sophomore music students Jonathan D. Keener and Nathan N. Bontrager will present a duo recital 4 p.m. Saturday, Apr. 23, in EMU’s Lehman Auditorium.

Keener, a pianist, and Bontrager, a cellist, will perform Johannes Brahms’ "E Minor Sonata for Cello and Piano" and the "Waldenstein" Piano Sonata by Ludwig Van Beethoven. Keener will also play solo works by Chopin and Liszt.

Keener, from Mt. Joy, Pa., and Bontrager, from Akron, Pa., have played a variety of solo pieces while at EMU and have collaborated on chamber music works since the beginning of their college career. Both are dual music performance and music education majors.

Admission to the program is free.
