In the fall of 1994, the chamber ensemble Double Take, Dr. Sheryl Linch-Parker on trumpet and Dr. Don Parker on percussion, perform a blend of contemporary and traditional styles. Double Take provides a unique musical, cultural, and educational experience for audiences of all ages. With the exploration of different sound textures and colors, this ensemble has enticed its listeners with an intensity that reflects an honest approach towards new music that all can understand and enjoy. Double Take has had the opportunity to present workshops and perform professionally in North Carolina, Illinois, Texas, South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri, and Nebraska.
