Quintet Attacca, one of Chicago’s most dynamic chamber music ensembles, will make a stop in Pittsburg on Oct. 13 to perform at McCray Hall on the campus of Pittsburg State University. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Priding itself on its innovative programming, Quintet Attacca presents concerts that are both accessible and cutting-edge. Programs have included works that reflect the Classical and Romantic eras, as well as jazz and Latin influenced works and pieces by many of today’s leading composers.
The artists are dedicated to bringing the unique sound of the wind quintet to diverse audiences: from Italy’s Emilia Romagne Festival to New York’s Schneider Concerts Series, to concert halls across the U.S., and many live broadcasts.
The quintet was grand prize winner and wind division gold medal winner of the 2002 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.
