The event, "A Tribute to African American Composers," is set for 3 p.m. at Eastside Prep, 1041 Myrtle Ave. in East Palo Alto.

It will feature performances by Menlo Park pianist Josephine Gandolfi, as well as pianists LaDoris Cordell, a former Palo Alto City Council member, Deanne Tucker, and Jefferson Williams. Performers also include soprano Yolanda Rhodes, violinist Susan C. Brown, and cellist Victoria Ehrlich.
