Friends of Music at St. Philip's in the Hills Episcopal Church will present "20th Century Chamber Music Mania" at 2 p.m. Sunday.

A group of notable Tucson professional musicians will perform 20th century music for a variety of small ensembles. If you're not familiar with 20th century chamber music, you're not alone, but this concert will introduce you to it.

The concert will feature Sandy Schwoebel, flute; Yvonne Creanga, viola and violin; Sara Fraker, oboe; John Snavely, clarinet; Theodore Buchholz, cello; Elena Todd, soprano; and Marie Sierra, piano.

Among many other pieces the concert will feature the Tucson debut of Dallapiccola's Divertimento in Quattro Esercizi for soprano, flute, oboe, viola and cello. The four movements tell the story of a girl who falls in love and is loved in return, but finally, when the lovers want to marry, her mother stands in the way.

Admission is a $15 suggested donation to St. Philip's Friends of Music.

St. Philip's is at 4440 N. Campbell Ave. at East River Road. Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar covered parking structure on the east side. The office phone is 299-6421.
