The musicians of Inscape Chamber Orchestra are a local gem, consistently presenting programs of music mostly from the 20th and 21st centuries. Their concert 7:30 p.m. Saturday will offer three works highlighting Inscape’s distinctive musicians at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda.

Samuel Barber’s Capricorn Concerto, cast in the style of a baroque concerto grosso, features prominent parts for flute, oboe, and trumpet. Inscape’s executive director, Evan Ross Solomon, will take the solo part in Gerald Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto.

The evening closes with Benjamin Britten’s delightful Sinfonietta, featuring the whole group. Show up early for the wine reception preceding the concert, starting at 6:30 p.m. inscape.org
