Aug. 10--This year's Redfield Area Concert Association schedule brings performances by a husband-and-wife team, a successful tenor, an a cappella group and a brass quintet.

The 2014-15 season opens Sept. 20 with a performance by instrumentalist Jakob Kuba Kawnik and his wife, Rebecca, an acclaimed Broadway vocalist. The Redfield Area Concert Association said the couple will "present a musical repertoire combined with onstage chemistry that is sure to make this a fun show for everyone."

The Twin Cities ensemble, Six Appeal, will follow Nov. 30. The all-male group was named national champions of a cappella music in 2012.

"With male a cappella a favorite of our concert members, this promises to be an outstanding show of all things a cappella," said the news release.

March 17 will see a performance by Ben Gulley, who performed on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera as a national semifinalist. A graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Gulley is also a member of the group The American Tenors.

The season ends April 23 with a performance by the Alliance Brass Quintet.

"This amazing Chicago-based group performs a repertoire from the early Renaissance to jazz and beyond and is poised to become one of the world's finest brass ensembles," according to the Concert Association. "Their musical virtuosity and infectious enthusiasm will make for a wonderful and memorable performance."

The Redfield Area Concert Association is conducting its membership drive. Membership is $40 for an adult, $85 for a family (two adults and children) and $10 for a student (high school and younger). For more information, call 605-472-2102.

A member may also attend performances in Huron, Pierre and Gettysburg due to a reciprocal agreement between all four concert associations.
