Quintet of the Americas in Concert
7:00PM - 9:30PM

Presented by Quintet of the Americas 

Quintet of the Americas, Queens’ renowned woodwind quintet, will present an evening of new music, including Mexican composer Arturo Marquez's Danza de mediodia, Brazilian-American composer Ricardo Romaneiro's minimalist piece Ventos, Xinyan Li's Mo Suo's Burial Ceremony, Valerie Coleman's Tzigane and Owl City's Fireflies.

Written in the fall of 2011, Valerie Coleman was inspired by two occurrences: Imani Winds’ collaboration with Palestinian oud player Simon Shaheen, and her recent completion of Roma, a work for wind ensemble celebrating the culture of the Romani people (commonly referred to as ‘gypsies’). The work itself represents the third installment within a series inspired by the combination of Romani and middle-eastern styles, the first two being a nonet for wind quintet and strings, and the previously mentioned wind ensemble. Visit the composer at https://www.vcolemanmusic.com/.

Mo Suo's Burial Ceremony was composed in 2006, and was inspired by the unique funeral customs in Mo Suo, a Chinese southwest minority. Visit Xinyan Li at http://www.xinyanli.org/.

Ricardo Romaneiro's Ventos was recorded by Quintet of the Americas for their Sounds of Brazil CD. Hear it at https://soundcloud.com/romaneiro/ventos?in=romaneiro/sets/selected-works.
