“Listen Locally,” a series of chamber music concerts, returns to the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall for its second season.

The series premiere, featuring Arabesque Winds, takes place on Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Arabesque Winds, is an award-winning woodwind quintet. A Washington Post review of a recent Kennedy Center performance credited them with having “skill and depth beyond their years …. It was the unanimity of their ensemble phrasing that took the breath away.”

The ensemble consists of Deidre Huckabay on flute; Liz Specter Callahan on Oboe; Isabel Kim on clarinet; Jena Gardner on horn; and Eryn Bauer on bassoon.

Warren Davidson — Slippery Rock University professor, conductor of the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra, concertmaster of the Academy Chamber Orchestra and artistic director of the “Listen Locally” concert series — is excited about working with the ACFL&MH to offer this series to Pittsburgh audiences.

“This is a fun lineup of music from Baroque to Tango, some of Pittsburgh's most popular chamber music groups and some you might not have heard before, and all this in one of the very best performance spaces in the city. Plus, free parking!”

In addition to the Arabesque Winds concert, the lineup for “Listening Locally's” 2013-14 season features:

• Oct. 29 — Cuidado (tango band)

• Nov. 25 — Academy Chamber Ensemble (music for string duo, quartet, and quintet)

• Feb. 24 — Freya Quartet (string quartet)

• March 31 — Ferla-Marcinizyn Guitar Duo with contralto Daphne Alderson

• April 28 — Matt Murchison Mutiny (euphonium, flute, piano, bass, drums)

Tickets for “Listen Locally” are $15 and can be purchased in advance at the ACFL&MH during library hours or at the box office that evening. Contact Lynne Cochran, Music Hall Director, at 412-276-3456, ext. 7, for more information.
