Music@Menlo’s 2011/2012 Winter Series continues on February 12 at 4:00 p.m. at the Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton with a  concert of wind chamber music gems titled Winds of France.

The program showcases selections for various combinations of wind instruments and piano and culminates in the entire ensemble performing Francis Poulenc’s Sextet for Piano, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, and Horn.

Music@Menlo favorites, including pianist Alessio Bax (pictured), clarinetist David Shifrin, and flutist Tara Helen O’Connor, join forces with an elite ensemble of wind players from the Chamber Music Society, including Stephen Taylor (oboe), Peter Kolkay (bassoon), and William Purvis (horn), for this program of works by some of France’s most compelling musical voices.

Limited tickets are available online, priced at $50/$45 for adults and $25/$20 for students
