At 7 p.m. Sept. 21, a brass quintet consisting of Rob Smith and Perry Landmeyer on trumpet,  Andrew Karr on horn, Joël Vaisse on trombone, and Bill Mickelson on tuba will greet travelers in a newly opened event space between Airsides A and C at Tampa International Airport.

At noon Sept. 22, a reed trio featuring  Jeffrey Stephenson on oboe, Joseph Beverly on clarinet and Maurizio Venturini on bassoon will perform at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd, Dunedin.

And at 3 p.m. Sept. 22, Jeffrey Stephenson on oboe, Joseph Beverly on clarinet, and Maurizio Venturini on bassoon greet customers at the Leepa-Rattner Museum, on the Tarpon Springs campus of St. Petersburg College, 600 E Klosterman Rd, Tarpon Springs.
