Relevents on the radio

David Ford talk to oboist Thomas Pappas and flutist Laura Dangerfield Stevens.

Relevents Wind Quintet is the faculty ensemble in residence at High Point University. What began in 2008 as a group of professional Greensboro musicians who clicked as musical colleagues and friends quickly turned into one of the Triad’s premiere chamber ensembles. Since then they’ve toured throughout Florida, Virginia, the Carolinas, and southern Germany. On Friday night, January 17th at 7:30PM, you can hear this remarkable quintet live in concert right here in the Triad compliments of Music for a Great Space. The concert series brings only the finest musicians to the Piedmont, where they perform in—you guessed it—great spaces. The Relevents performance is no exception. It’ll be held in St. Pius Catholic Church in Greensboro, 2210 N. Elm Street.

It’ll be a dynamic program too with virtuoso music for winds by American composer Samuel Barber, a living composer inspired by his work, and others forging new musical paths of their own. Oboist Thomas Pappas and flutist Laura Dangerfield Stevens stopped by recently to talk shop.

It’s sure to be a wonderful performance and it’s in a GREAT SPACE.
