Wow! What a treat! One of the artists at Chautauqua this week is the Akropolis Reed Quintet. Their concert will take place at 4:00 pm on Monday, 10 July 2017 in Lenna Hall.
If you remember they were featured by the Jamestown Concert Association a year or two ago. They are just fabulous, and they are also the first ever reed quintet to win the Fischoff Gold Medal in 2014! Akropolis took Grand Prize at the MTNA and Plowman chamber music competitions consecutively in 2011, and has garnered prizes at three additional national competitions. Championing the next generation of maverick musicians, Akropolis is also winner of the 2015 Fischoff Educator Award, delivering impactful outreach at schools ranging from kindergarten to conservatory.
