Akropolis Reed Quintet
Presented by Cecilian Chamber Series
- Sunday, November 19 - 3:00pm
The Cecilian Chamber Series presents the third concert in the 2023/2024 season, Ravel and The Eternal Silence,
Nearly a decade since their first performance, the Akropolis Reed Quintet continues to dazzle and engage audiences with virtuoso off-the-wall performances. Comprised of oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet, and bassoon, the group has earned critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences around the world with their unique blend of virtuosity, humor, and passion.
Having first appeared on our stage in 2019, this incredible ensemble returns to the Cecilian Chamber Series for a concert title inspired by the program's centrepiece, Ravel's "Le Tombeau de Couperin," a poignant tribute to the French soldiers who perished during World War I. The program will also include works they have had specifically commissioned. The ensemble's impeccable musicianship, precision, and sensitivity are sure to bring out the best throughout the concert.
Tickets are $65 for Level 1 seating, $60 for Level 2 seating, and $25 for Students, all fees and taxes included. Seating is assigned.
