Chamber Music on the Mountain is putting the spotlight on some local musicians and you’re invited! Catch the Ozark Wind Quintet in an intimate performance at Mount Sequoyah Center on Sunday, November 21 at 3:00 pm.
Fayetteville is full of talented artists with gifts to share, and an upcoming series of "Spotlight Concerts" will feature some local musicians who fit the bill. The first will highlight the Ozark Wind Quintet: instrumentalists Sarah Johnson (flute), Andrew Baker (oboe), Janice Bengtson (clarinet), Katy Luker (horn), and Kay Brusca (bassoon). The group is based in Northwest Arkansas, and the members are professional performing musicians in regional symphonies, chamber groups, wind ensembles, musical theaters, churches, and choirs.
It’s a special opportunity to see these professional musicians in close quarters, in a dreamy world of music-making where each musician devotes themselves individually to creating moments together. Just one small ensemble, each playing their own part, with no conductor. Each experience is unique and can’t be replicated!
The Ozark Wind Quintet will perform the following pieces:
Trois Pièces Brèves - Jacques Ibert
Kleine Kammermusik für fünf Bläser - Paul Hindemith
Suite of Old Lettish Dances - Andrejs Jansons
Three Shanties for Wind Quintet - Malcolm Arnold
Sous le Ciel de Paris for Wind Quintet - Hubert Giraud/Lin Y.E.
Aria and Quodlibet for Woodwind Quintet - Arne Running
Tickets are $15, which also admits one child. Additional children’s tickets are $10 and those 5 and under attend for free. Discounted tickets for students are available for $12.
The performance will take place at Mount Sequoyah Center, Millar Lodge on Sunday November 21 at 3:00 pm. Masks are required.
