Zephyrus Trio to play at St. Philip's

Chamber music concert is part of summer series at the church

Cassandra Bendickson, left, Cindy Behmer and Kevin Justus are the Zephyrus Trio. They will perform Sunday.

The St. Philip's Friends of Music Summer Concert Series will feature "Zephyrus Trio & Friends: Winds, Keys and Cords" at 2 p.m. Sunday at St. Philip's in the Hills Episcopal Church.

The concert is a blend of chamber music featuring oboe, English horn, clarinet, bassoon, horn, piano and guitar.

The Zephyrus Trio, Cindy Behmer (oboe), Kevin Justus (clarinet) and Cassandra Bendickson (bassoon) will open the program with a work by French composer Paul Pierne.

Second on the program is a two-movement reed duo for clarinet and bassoon, written by 18th-century French composer and bassoonist Francois Rene Gebauer. Closing the first half of the concert is a trio by Austrian composer Heinrich von Herzogenberg, who was a close friend of Johannes Brahms.

The second half of the concert features a new setting of "Siete Canciones Populares Espanolas" by Manuel de Falla. Originally written for voice and piano, the set of popular songs will be heard for the first time on guitar and English horn.

Next on the program will be the dramatic "Elegie" by well-known composer Francis Poulenc, written to commemorate the death of a close friend.

The Zephyrus Trio will close the concert with a staple of the French trio d'anche repertoire by Pierre Max Dubois.

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

St. Philip's is located at 4440 N. Campbell Ave., at East River Road. Parking is available in the north parking lot. The concert will be held in the church.
