Studio Z Presents
Twin Cities Reed Quintet
The Twin Cities Reed Quintet brings together top musicians in the classical, jazz, world, and contemporary music scenes to present music from the new and ever-growing repertoire of the reed quintet. These five reed instruments (oboe, saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and bassoon) create a wonderfully rich and vibrant ensemble sonority that is well-suited to works of many different styles. Even though the reed quintet is a relatively new chamber music configuration that was only developed in the 1980s, it is the mission of the TCRQ to perform a wide range of music, both original and adapted, from many genres, including the baroque polyphony of Handel, the jazzy harmonies of Gershwin, and the rocking and rollicking minimalism of Marc Mellits.
Carrie Vecchione, oboe, Joan Hutton, saxophone, Jennifer Gerth, clarinet, Pat O'Keefe, bass clarinet, & Nick Ober, bassoon.
