Red Cedar Chamber Music has adopted as its mantra “Chamber music should be just like this–intimate, bonding, and conversational,” quoting a review of its core performers, the Red Cedar Trio, in The American Record Guide. Red Cedar audiences are treated to equal doses of the antique and the avant-garde. On one hand, Red Cedar specializes in the performance of early 19th-century music on period instruments. On the other hand, Red Cedar annually commissions new work for modern instruments.



Paul Galbraith, classical guitar • Feb. 20, 2017

Paul Galbraith, classical guitar, will perform on Monday, Feb. 20.

A brilliant innovator of the classical guitar, Paul Galbraith expands the technical limits of his instrument. He has produced a series of critically acclaimed recordings of works by Bach, Haydn, and Brahms, along with his own arrangements of folk tunes from various countries, all of which demonstrate the originality of his musical personality. By exchanging the traditional guitar for the eight-string Brahms Guitar, which he helped to develop, Galbraith found the ideal instrument with which to interpret the challenging Classical transcriptions from his highly personal repertoire.






SYBARITE5 • April 10, 2017

SYBARITE5 will perform on Monday, April 10.

“Their rock star status is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience…” That is how The Sarasota Herald Tribune described SYBARITE5, classical music’s most dynamic new music group.
