The concert was organized by Chris Frye and featured the two winning works in the La Crosse Chamber Chorale composition competition: What's the Fuss?, by Ivar Lunde and Three Fragmented Farces by Gary Walth. Other composers whose works were performed include Al Benner, David Bohn, James Chaudoir, Ryan Conners, Michael Cunningham, and David Kraehenbuehl.
