// OCT 30: Akropolis Reed Quintet

Celebrating their 13th year making music with “faultless detail and refreshing artistry” (I Care if You Listen) as 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 reed quintet to grace the Billboard Charts (May 2021), the untamed band of five reed players and entrepreneurs are united by a shared passion: to make music that sparks joy and wonder.

This concert is made possible in part by a generous donation from Chamber Music America.


// NOV 6: Kinan Azmeh + Kyle Sanna

Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and guitarist Kyle Sanna perform original works by both composers/performers while walking the fine line between the composed and the improvised. This is music that is inspired by a multitude of traditions without being limited by any of these traditions.


// NOV 20: Isidore String Quartet

The Isidore String Quartet, First Prize Winners of Banff International String Quartet Competition 2022, perform Dinuk Wijeratne's The Disappearance of Lisa Gherardini ( BISQC 2022 Commission), selections from J. S. Bach’s Art of the Fugue, and Billy Childs' String Quartet No. 2 "Awakening.”


// DEC 4: Lara St. John

Violinist Lara St. John performs music from her September 2022 album, she/her/hers, which features 17 original solo violin compositions written by leading composers, including Laurie Anderson, Valerie Coleman, Gabriela Lena Frank, Jessica Meyer, Jessie Montgomery, Milica Paranosic, Adah Kaplan, Melissa Dunphy, Sophie-Carmen Eckhardt Gramatté, and Ana Sokolović.


// DEC 18: Neel Murgai + Brooklyn Raga Massive
