Linda Bento-Rei and Vytas Baksys will present flute and piano selections during a Marvelous Music program at Siesta Key's St. Boniface Episcopal Church on April 25, the church has announced. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. The ticket donation is $10. The church is located at 5615 Midnight Pass Road. Bento-Rei has performed frequently as a soloist and in chamber music programs throughout New England, a news release notes. Since 1989, Baksys has been the fac- ulty pianist with the Fellowship Conducting Program at The Tanglewood Music Center and a frequent keyboardist with the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops orchestras, the release continues. The program will feature Sonata Latino by Mike Mower; CPE Bach's Sonata in G minor; Joseph Jongen's Sonata pour flute et piano, Op. 77; and Peter Schickele's Spring Serenade, the release adds. The performance of Sonata pour flute et piano is part of what has come to be known as Bento-Rei's "Jongen Project," the release notes. "Having fallen in love with the flute music by this composer," the release says, she is in the process of recording many of his works for flute and other instruments. "Most of Jongen's music is known only to enthusiasts of the pipe organ, though he composed prolifically in almost all forms of music," the release points out. Tickets are available online and they will be offered at the door. MARVELOUS MUSIC TO BE PRESENTED AT ST. BONIFACE CHURCH A&E BRIEFS
