Red Cedar Chamber Music, in collaboration with the Williamsburg Public Library, brings Strum & Jam, an exciting Rural Outreach concert for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and guitar, to the Williamsburg Public Library.

Flutist Jan Boland, guitarist John Dowdall, violinist Miera Kim, clarinetist Maurita Murphy Mead and cellist Carey Bostian join forces to perform an engaging and soulful quintet and then break into trio configurations for the 18th and 19th-century pieces by Haydn, Mozart and Kreutzer. The concert also features Maurita Murphy Mead and her sleek clarinet on beautiful and dynamic choros from the streets of Brazil.

This is a free concert.

Red Cedar Chamber Music's Rural Outreach concerts are sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the James & Norma Jean Rosborough Foundation and The Iowa Arts Council with additional support from Alliant Energy. The Williamsburg performance of Strum & Jam is supported by the Williamsburg Public Library.

This concert is named after the quintet Strum & Jam written in 1993 by Oregon composer Bryan Johanson. Johanson's piece is fueled by high energy strumming in the guitar and also by reflective moments where peaceful melodies are passed among the instruments. Strum & Jam is designed to give every instrument the chance to "jam" and it closes with the violinist playing a lively Irish-style jig.
