Quint-Essential Winds to perform as part of Wright Museum’s Lecture Series

On Tuesday, June 25 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. as part of the Wright Museum’s Lecture Series, woodwind quintet Quint-Essential Winds will perform a concert that honors American composers. 

Clarinet player Robert Sinclair expressed enthusiasm for the event.

“I am especially excited about the quality and variety of the music we will be performing and that all of it was originally written by American composers,” he said. 

The concert will include works by American composers, such as Aaron Copland, Eric Ewazen, Alec Wilder and more. 

In addition to six original pieces and four arrangements spanning from 20th and 21st century, the event will include a quiet Pastorale, a lively representation of a quick moving mountain stream.

“There will be what we consider to be some outstanding arrangements of famous orchestral works,” said Sinclair. “Combine all of this together, and you have something for everyone and every age.”

Musicians in the quintet include Marjorie Hogan, flute; Duane Bateman, oboe; Robert Sinclair, clarinet; Maria Isaak, bassoon; and Stephen Taylor, horn. 

“We hope the audience will see the flexibility of a woodwind quintet and gain an appreciation for the variety of genres that can be artistically presented to provide a high level of entertainment” added Sinclair.

Quint-Essential Winds: “Only in America” Concert will be held in Wolfeboro Town Hall’s Great Hall on Tuesday, June 25. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212.

Sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, the series takes place every Tuesday through the end of Wright Museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31.
