Staff Report

The Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center presents a double shot of flute with Scott Metlicka and Jean Bishop at the next “Music on Main” concert at 5:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 15, at the historic Emerson House, 420 N. Main St., Rockford.

Concertgoers can kick back and enjoy the music, relax with a glass of wine and light refreshments, and meet the performers after the program, which is about an hour in length.

In the program “20th Century Duo Flute,” the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra’s own Metlicka and Bishop will perform tonal solo and duo pieces, all composed in the 20th century, but each piece distinctly differing from the others. It will include a piece by American composer Dexter Morrill, whose “Stained Glass Concerto” will be featured in the Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra’s concert Oct. 26. Metlicka will be the featured flute soloist in that concert.

Admission to “Music on Main” is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Proceeds benefit the musicians and “Music on Main.”
