FEBRUARY 4 at 8:00 PM

Calefax

Coolidge Auditorium

After more than 25 years of touring as an ensemble, the Calefax reed quintet is known world-wide for its unique instrumentation and arrangements. Playing music ranging from early Baroque to Ellington and Gershwin, Calefax has released 17 CDs of works written for the group and old favorites with a new twist. With its musicians performing with the core complement of oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet and bassoon, Calefax will regale with its own transcriptions of works originally for voice, organ, piano, orchestra and even player piano. These imaginative musicians will transform the way you listen to these pieces. Photo credit: Rob Marinissen
