Band of Five + Lee Kesselman (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, piano)
Band of Five woodwind quintet has been seen gracing stages, cathedrals and orchestra pits of Chicago for many decades - and they are thrilled to step out from behind the curtain of the strings to shine on their own! These 5 players (Susan Saylor: flute, Deb Stevenson: oboe, Dan Won: clarinet, Jonathan Saylor: bassoon and Dan O’Connell: horn) have personalities as distinctly different as the five instruments they play - but put them together and they perform and react as one! Together with pianist Lee Kesselman, the quintet will perform the Mozart Piano Quintet (reportedly one of Mozart’s favorite compositions!) and the Poulenc Sextet. Lively programming and the chance to experience these musicians up close and personal makes their shows a concert to remember!
