Red Cedar Chamber Music: All in the Family
May 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

All in the Family

Fresh off our very successful inaugural live-streamed concert series, Swiss Family Bostian, Red Cedar Chamber Music’s directors and core ensemble, violinist Miera Kim and cellist Carey Bostian, once again team up with their two sons, Oliver and Adrian to bring you a set of 4 performances of an all-new program. All in the Family will be broadcast live via YouTube on Wednesday, May 6 at 1 pm, Thursday, May 7 at 7 pm, Friday, May 8 at 7 pm, and Saturday, May 9 at 1 pm.

All in the Family includes several works for string quartet by Red Cedar’s composer-in-residence, Michael Kimber, including the world premiere of the Red Cedar Blues, composed for our most recent concert project Physics, Art & Music. The remainder of the program is a variety of music spanning from early English baroque to a work by the great violin virtuoso Niccolo Paganini. Five different combinations of instruments culminate with a rare appearance (for Red Cedar) of a piano!
