The New World Symphony’s final chamber music concert of the season features a typically varied program, mixing familiar and rarely heard works. Beethoven’s “Kakadu” Variations is the afternoon’s appetizer. Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings forms the program’s centerpiece. Set to poetry by Tennyson, Keats and others, the cycle is one of Britten’s most significant nonopera works. Met tenor Paul Appleby, who gave an outstanding concert last season for Friends of Chamber Music, is the vocal protagonist and Josh Cote is horn soloist. George Enescu’s String Octet in C Major concludes the concert. Roberto González-Monjas is guest violinist and leader.

Concert time is 2 p.m. Sunday at New World Center in Miami Beach.; 305-673-3331.
