A family friendly program by a young wind ensemble will open the 41st season of the Hemet Community Concert Association (HCCA) at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20. In addition to selections by Beethoven, Debussy and Dvorak, the Quintessential Winds will perform a suite from ?The Little Mermaid? and John Williams? ?The Flying Theme? from ?E.T.?  The Los Angeles-based group of flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn and bassoon performs standard wind quintet repertoire, but they are also committed to promoting and performing the music of new composers. They have premiered many new works and have recorded their first album, which includes compositions with Latin influence. Horn player Adrian Dunker arranges many of their pieces. Again this season, HCCA is offering five concerts for $55. Anyone 22 years old or under is admitted free. Tickets are available at the door; general admission is $25. The rest of the season will feature Zofo Duet, playing four-hand piano; The Merling Trio; Arioso, a harp and flute duo; and the Peter Sprague String Consort. HCCA?s concerts take place at the First Southern Baptist Church, located at 433 S. San Jacinto St. in Hemet, between Acacia and Mayberry Avenues. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
