The Chamber Music Society of Minnesota presents a free concert Saturday in West St. Paul. The performers include the Society's musicians as well as various combinations of student players. Twenty-four students just spent a week at Burntside Lake in Ely, Minn., as part of the Northern Lights Chamber Music Institute, where they studied with CMSM players Young-Nam Kim, Ariana Kim, Sally Chisholm, and James Jacobson.

Saturday's concerts will include quartets, sextets and octets by Brahms, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert, Ravel and Smetana, and will conclude with all the musicians together in Schubert's Allegro and Hypyt by Finish composer Einijuhani Rautavaara.

Concert is at 7 p.m. at Augustana Lutheran Church, 1400 S. Robert St., West St. Paul. Free.
