KSO principal oboist Dave Lehman will lead the orchestra players in the Haydn Sinfonia Concertante for solo bassoon, oboe, violin and cello.

Solo players for this piece will be KSO bassoonist Martha Robinson; Jenny Charles, solo oboe; KSO cellist Thomas Cappaert; and KSO violinist Abe Baker.

Shari Heda Gentile, clarinetist, will be featured in the Adagio from the Clarinet Concerto by Mozart.

“The Five,” a woodwind quintet comprised of Lynn Vogl, flute; Jenny Charles, oboe; Shari Heda Gentile, clarinet; Mark Robinson, french horn; and Martha Robinson, bassoon; will perform pieces by August Klughardt and Leonard Cohen during the second half of the program.

The Prisma String Quartet, Westminster’s string quartet-in-residence, also will be featured, playing the Haydn String Quartet in G minor.

Admission to the concert is an optional free-will offering. All proceeds will benefit two causes: the cost of renting instruments for band or orchestra by sixth-grade students in DeKalb County (scholarships administered by the Kishwaukee Symphony Music Education Outreach Fund); and music programs for children at Westminster Church.
