Upcoming Performance in Washington, DC - New CD coming soon.

This June 18-22, 2010, the Lieurance Woodwind Quintet has been invited to and will present a recital for the National Association of College Wind and Percussion Instructors at the MENC Convention in Washington D.C. The recital, “Music of the Americas,” explores ground-breaking music written by composers since our group’s inception. The borrowing and blending of compositional techniques, antiquated forms, ethnic and poly-rhythms, not to mention popular song and jazz are the constant threads linking these distinctly “American” works together. The quintet is also honored to present the world-premiere of composer Nickitus Demos’ chamber work, “Alliances” at the Convention.

These exciting works can be heard on our soon-to-be-released CD on the SUMMIT label, “Music from the Americas,” recorded in our own Wiedemann Recital Hall.
