The program for this weekend’s NOVA Chamber Music Series concert focuses in large part on music that blurs the line between classical and more populist styles. Featured works are Aaron Copland’s Quiet City, William Grant Still’s Suite for Violin and Piano and Nikolai Kapustin’s Double Concerto for Violin and Piano. Rounding out the concert is Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata No. 1.

Portuguese pianist Luis Magalhães and violinist (and NOVA music director and Utah Symphony concertmaster) Madeline Adkins are the spotlighted artists. Also performing are Utah Symphony colleagues Lissa Stolz, English horn, and Travis Peterson, trumpet.

The concert will take place 3 p.m. Sunday in Libby Gardner Concert Hall.
