The Red Cedar Symphony’s second annual HomeGrown Concert has been scheduled to take place at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Bethany Lutheran Church, 35 W. Messenger St., in Rice Lake. 

The concert will feature three ensembles of the area’s finest classical musicians playing a mix of music from Bach to Bernstein. 

The pieces to be performed will showcase the unique sounds and harmonies of three different families of instruments: brass, woodwinds and strings.

The Red Cedar String Quartet, with symphony players Michael Elling and Robin Fossum on violin, Beth Good on viola and Peter Neal on cello, will perform Franz Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” and “Tango in D,” by Isaac Albeniz. “Trois Pieces Breves,” by Jacques Ibert; “Three Shanties,” by Malcolm Arnold; and the contemporary “Fireflies,” by Owl City, will be performed by the Red Cedar Woodwind Quintet, with Ruth Aaseng on flute, Alana Laufman on oboe, Patty Smith on clarinet, Kelli Lester on bassoon and Gail Waldron on horn.

The Sub-Zero Brass Quintet will perform a number of brief pieces, including “Amparito Roca,” by Jamie Texidor, and “Magnificant 7,” by Elmer Bernstein, with Justin Laufman on tuba, Kristina Meinke on French horn, Jim Perkins and Dominic Domeyer on trumpet and Calbe Domeyer on trombone.

Concert tickets are $15, with those 21 and under admitted free. For more information, visit
