Akropolis Reed Quintet
“The sheer sound of this group is instantly captivating…a sublime smoothness of tone and texture.”
–Jeremy Shatan, AnEarfull
Hailed as “a sonically daring ensemble who perform new works with charisma and integrity” by BBC Music Magazine, Akropolis will present imaginative arrangements alongside original reed works that highlight exploration into jazz and its impact on classical music. The program will include a traditional baroque dance suite with early jazz harmonies and Moods and Attitudes, a new work by jazz composer Omar Thomas consisting of a modernized shuffle, a noir ballad, and a bebop romp.
