Faculty Woodwind Quintet Performs Wed., Feb 13 at Nutt

The University of Mississippi Faculty Woodwind Quintet will take the Nutt Auditorium stage Wednesday, February 13, at 8:00 pm. The concert is free and open to the public and will feature works for winds by American composers Samuel Barber and George Rochberg, as well as a Mozart piano quartet arranged for winds by Robert G. Patterson, a Memphis based composer who also plays horn in the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. Clarinetist Dr. Michael Rowlett stated: “We’ve played several of Robert Patterson’s compositions and arrangements before, and they have been very well received by our audiences. The rest of the program is very colorful, including ‘Summer Music’ by Samuel Barber, one of the masterworks of the woodwind quintet repertoire.”
