Westport-based Music for Youth's Free Young Persons' Concert Series will present a performance by clarinetist Romie deGuise Langlois at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave., Fairfield.

She will perform a program geared toward youngsters, featuring music by Rossini, Weber, Gershwin and other composers, according to a release.

Langlois, a Montreal native and graduate of McGill University in Montreal and the Yale School of Music in New Haven, is a winner of the Astral Artists 2011 National Auditions. She also won first prize in both the 2009 Houston Symphony Competition and Yale's Woolsey Hall Competition. She is a founding member of the ensembles Duo Atria and Sospiro Winds, which won first prize at the 2008 Plowman Chamber Music Competition and the Silver Medal in the 2007 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.

The performance is free for families with children and geared toward ages 5 to 18. Adults without children are asked to make a goodwill donation.

Free master classes will follow the concert for clarinet students at intermediate level and above. To register for master classes, call 203-938-3843.

This is the fourth concert in Music for Youth's 2012-13 season. Future concerts include the Amphion String Quartet on Jan. 5, and Metropolitan Opera tenor Alek Shrader on Feb. 9.
