Opening Night – Akropolis Reed Quintet in Concert

Celebrating their 14th year making music with a “collective voice driven by real excitement and a sense of adventure” (The Wire), the Akropolis Reed Quintet has “taken the chamber music world by storm” (Fanfare). As the first ensemble of their makeup to grace the Billboard Charts (May 2021), the untamed band of 5 reed players and entrepreneurs are united by a shared passion: to make music that sparks joy and wonder. Their concert will feature custom arrangements of Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin and Arthur Cunningham’s Harlem Suite, along with dynamic new music the ensemble has commissioned and premiered throughout its 22-23 season.

This event is presented by the University of New Orleans School of the Arts.
