Description

On Sunday, October 7 at 2:00 PM, Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts is proud to bring back to its Lincoln Hall audience the innovative, award winning ensemble, AKROPOLIS QUINTET, which in the spring of 2017 performed workshops and assembly concerts exclusively in ARCA’s Educational ArtReach residency program in the Allegheny-Clarion Valley Schools.

In “Under the Influence,” Akropolis presents classical music bearing a wide array of influences, from rock and electronic music to jazz, tango, and folk songs. Including works by Gershwin, Piazzolla, and living legends Marc Mellits, Nico Muhly, and Rob Deemer, each work absorbs the characteristics of a different genre, style, or era, and then creates fresh, relevant music, reflecting upon the original and looking forward. Akropolis also explores their own influences as a reed quintet as they build their ensemble’s repertoire and re-visit their personal and collective inspirations by which they have forged their genre-bending identity.

Hailed as “pure gold” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Akropolis Reed Quintet performs with infectious energy and spectacular color. Winners of the Fischoff Gold Medal in 2014 and the 2015 Fischoff Educator Award, the Quintet has embarked on an ambitious performance season touring their inventive concerts and workshops across America. Fresh off the release of their third commercial album, The Space Between Us (Innova Records) Akropolis has just launched a colorful and interactive new website!
