The evening begins at 7:30 with a performance from the MCLA Wind Ensemble, three student voice performers, and one monologue by an MCLA theatre student. Reynolds will then take the stage at 8 p.m., transforming the Church Street Center as he does when he plays Carnegie Hall, with his classical violin plugged into digital technology.
