“Of Dark Winds and Rosewood”
April 24, 2018, Time TBD
Lee Theatre, Touhill Performing Arts Center, UMSL Campus
Of all standard chamber music ensembles, the woodwind quintet gives composers the richest variety of tonal color with which to experiment. The Equinox Chamber Players will showcase this palette in works by Mary Jane Leach, Phillip Bimstein, Justinian Tamasuza, Frank Bridge and Zac Cairns that explore the sonic and rhythmic worlds of the Kaibab Plateau, Uganda, St Louis and the physicality of sound itself.
The finale of the program will add the rich woodiness of the marimba to the ensemble in an exciting work by Zachary Cairns featuring Equinox friend Jeffrey Barudin.
