Featured repertoire is specific for bass clarinet and piano. Compositions by Yvonne Desportes, Kathy Henkel, and Eugene Bozza capitalize on musical proficiency to deliver lyrical and expressive performances.

The concert also features the world premiere of "Color’tudes 'Five Attitudinal Colors' for Bass Clarinet and Piano" by Howard Buss. Buss is internationally known for contemporary classical compositions. He composed this piece for Dr. Kolbeck and Dr. Miller-Niles during the summer of 2020. "Color’tudes" personifies the influence of color on the human condition. The musical suite varies from thoughtful and pensive to playful and spirited.
