February 3 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Enjoy a winter classical concert in the parlors with the Quintet of the Americas, featuring clarinetist Benjamin Baron, flutist Karla Moe, horn player Barbara Oldham, oboist Matt Sullivan, and bassoonist Sasha Enegren. The group was formed in Bogota, Colombia, in 1976 by U.S. citizens who were principal wind players in the Colombian National Orchestra. The group relocated to New York City in 1979 and has since enjoyed an international career that has taken them to concert halls throughout the Americas, the Caribbean, and Asia, including annual performances at Manhattan’s Americas Society. Two-time recipients of ASCAP-Chamber Music America Awards for Adventurous Programming, the Quintet’s repertoire represents works from composers with a wide range of aesthetic viewpoints. A reception with light refreshments will follow the performance.
