The Amherst College Department of Music presents <i>Four and Five</i>, an original composition thesis by Steven Molitor '16, on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. The concert is free and open to the public; seating is by general admission.

<i>Four and Five</i> is a culmination of Steven’s musical education at Amherst and is focused on classical and jazz music. The concert consists of two sections: a string quartet performance and a five-person jazz combo performance. Steven’s compositions are influenced by his studies of both classical and jazz music in addition to his experience as a guitarist playing jazz, rock and metal music. The music for string quartet will be performed by the Wistaria String Quartet, and the jazz combo pieces will be performed by a combo comprising saxophonist Carl Clements, bassist Jamie MacDonald, pianist Paul Arslanian, drummer Jon Fisher and the composer, Steven Molitor, on guitar.
