The Kalliope Reed Quintet, founded in 2019, is the first professional reed quintet in New England. Hailed by the Boston Woodwind Society as “a fantastic musical group full of personality and musical abilities, adding up to a sum much greater than the parts,” Kalliope has led the evolution of this ensemble through their many commissions and unabashedly ambitious programming. As a contemporary chamber ensemble and one of the first 50 reed quintets worldwide, their mission is to expand and diversify the reed quintet repertoire and to further strengthen the role of contemporary chamber music in the 21st century by presenting unique, engaging and educational programs to communities locally and worldwide. Learn more about the Kalliope Reed Quintet here. Listen to previous concerts by the Kalliope Reed Quintet here.

This concert features works from living composers from across Latin America, beginning with Mexican composers Abraham Gomez and Nubia Jaime Donjuan. Next we will feature two Kalliope commissions,  Miguel del Aguila’s Transoceanica, musically depicting an adventurous bus ride from Rio to Lima, Peru, followed by Peruvian/American composer Daniel Cueto’s Amaru, inspired by the Peruvian Deity and featured on our upcoming album! And in celebration of it being the week of George Gershwin’s 125th birthday, Kalliope will complete the concert with two brand new Gershwin arrangements: selections from his lesser-known opera Blue Monday, and one of his favorite masterpieces Rhapsody in Blue.
