Red Cedar Chamber Music FREE Concert

Red Cedar Chamber Music
"Woody Woodpecker" - Music for Flute, Guitar, and String Quartet


Please join us for this free concert by our area's premier chamber music ensemble. Take your lunch break or bring the family for this enchanting program.
Did you know that Woody Woodpecker's laugh is tucked inside a quintet for guitar and strings?  No wonder; Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, the composer of this hauntingly beautiful quintet, also composed Hollywood film scores.
Tedesco's 20th century work is paired with a delightful, but rarely heard 19th century flute quintet by German composer Gaspard Kummer. Kummer's quintet is performed from the original 19th century score.

Red Cedar Trio members Jan Boland (flute), John Dowdall (guitar) and Carey Bostian (cello) are joined by Miera Kim (violin), Beth Hoffman (violin and viola) and Lisa Ponton (viola).

The musicians pepper the performance with lively commentary and musical examples designed to entertain and educate audience members about these special pieces.
