The Op. 39 quintet by Prokofiev is based on his ballet, Trapeze, which was written during his time in Paris. The strange, virtuosic, and sometimes grotesque music perfectly represents circus performers and carnival sights. 
Centred around the Prokofiev, our quirky program explores light and dark music by these four swell composers.

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 — 12:30 PM EST

Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.

Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you!  Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal.  Its fleeting mood, ravishing grandeur, and subtlety of timbre eclipse the rigours of traditional form.  Follow that with the fun of William Bolcom's Ghost Rags and you'll find a classical road map to jazz.  Join friends from the KW Symphony in this performance of music that enlivens and inspires.

The KW Woodwind Quintet has chosen a program of delightful music by French composers to showcase the "jolie vent" that wind instruments create. The concert will include Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin, Debussy's Children's Corner, Bozza's Scherzo, and Bizet's Carmen Fantasie. Bienvenue à notre concert!

In October 1998, university student Matthew Shepard was targeted for his sexuality. He was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die in a lonely field.

Twenty years after that terrible event, we perform Craig Hella Johnson’s bold and transcendent work, which incorporates a variety of musical styles and texts, including passages from Matthew’s personal journal.
