Up Close and Personal with the PSO @ Jimmy's Chamber Music Series: Principal Winds
Explore the boundaries between jazz and classical music. Each concert in the series features ensembles of PSO musicians who will showcase the richness, flexibility, and often surprising range of the classical chamber music repertoire in Jimmy’s century-old, spectacularly restored, state-of-the-art club. Paired with fine food and libations, this series promises chamber music like audiences have never experienced before.
The PSO’s principal wind players present a program of woodwind quintet and sextet music with a wide range of enchanting, quirky and melodic works. From the wit and emotional depth of Francois Poulenc’s Sextet, to the jazzy Sextet by Theodor Blumer, and the bluesy spun melodies of Samuel Barber’s Quintet, we will explore a variety of tonal landscapes designed to excite, challenge and charm the listener.
PSO Principal Winds includes Melissa Grady, bassoon; John Ferraro, clarinet; Sarah Krebs, oboe; and Aubrie Dionne, Flute. They are joined by Orlando Pandolfi, French horn and Chris Gantner, piano.
