On Saturday, February 10th at Sharpened Iron Studios in downtown Amarillo Chamber Music Amarillo presents Trio-Sara-Chops, a trio of musicians including soprano Sarah Beckham-Turner, horn player Guli Manfredi, and pianist Sarah Rushing, all faculty at the School of Music at West Texas A&M University.
