Red Cedar Chamber Music Shares World-Class Music Across Washington

A music group that aims to share chamber music across Eastern Iowa is working with a Washington non-profit to have four concerts in Washington.

Red Cedar Chamber Music is partnering with the LET’s Center for the Creative and Healing Arts to share the music across the community. Cellist Carey Bostian says they had a very successful concert at a senior living center, “Frankly, at Halcyon House we had such a good audience there it was about 60 people. Part of Red Cedar’s mission is to bring world-class chamber music to places and people where they wouldn’t normally have it. So, for example, at a senior center, you know, they’re not necessarily able to get out and to go to a ticketed concert somewhere, so for us to bring our music to them is pretty special. And that’s something we do really all over eastern Iowa.”

Red Cedar Chamber Music is having their third concert of the Washington series this Friday at the Washington Community Center at 7 p.m. It is the only ticketed concert so that the others may be free. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, with dessert and drinks during the intermission. Bostian explains the concert will begin with a serious piece and be a party by the end with a violin, cello, and clarinet on stage.
