FALLBROOK – Continuing its reputation for excellence in classical music performance, the Fallbrook Music Society is honored to bring the superb artistry of the Dana Point Symphony Woodwind Quintet to Fallbrook’s Mission Theater on Sunday, September 26 at 3 p.m.
The Quintet is a collective of five exceptional musicians from an acclaimed organization that is helping to redefine the concert experience for classical music lovers around the world. “I am really looking forward to this concert,” said FMS President Bob Freaney. “The opportunity to see this exceptional group of talented musicians perform at Fallbrook is a great privilege,” he added.
The wind quintet is to wind instruments what the string quartet is to strings. The challenge of composing for the wind quintet is to weave a coherent musical fabric, while respecting the disparate characters of the five instruments. This superb ensemble mixes the individual sounds of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn and meets the challenge with imagination and mastery.
Their repertoire features the beautiful and joyful masterpieces of two of the world’s favorite composers such as Ibert and Bartok, as well as more contemporary composers such as Arturo Marquez, Milhaud and Theodor Blumer.
Through generous contributions from numerous sponsors, donors, bequests, as well as corporate and government grants, the Fallbrook Music Society continues to increase its outreach efforts by offering a wide range of classical music ensembles and artists from foreground, as well as music education awareness activities. .
Mission Theater is located at 231 N. Main Ave. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. and seats are general admission. The show is free; no ticket is required. Donations are always welcome to help support the company’s tradition of delivering excellence in classical music to Fallbrook and its surrounding communities. FMS is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. For more information, visit fallbrookmusicsociety.org or call 760-451-8644.
