Local chamber-folk ensemble Red Rock Rondo will have a CD-release concert for "A Secret Gift" this Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8:30 p.m. at the Jeanné Wagner Theater inside the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 W. 300 South, Salt Lake City).

Tickets are available at ArtTix by calling 801-355-2787.

"A Secret Gift" is a new Americana song cycle inspired by recently found letters from the Great Depression written in response to an anonymous gift-giver on the eve of Christmas in 1933.

Phillip Bimstein, former mayor of Springdale, composed the new 14-song cycle for Red Rock Rondo and then scored 8 of the songs for full orchestra and 165-voice choir.
