Artists-in-Residence Event: Calefax Reed Quintet

— A Woodwind Master Class with Calefax Reed Quintet —
The Calefax Reed Quintet, a unique reed ensemble from Amsterdam, has distinguished itself with its imaginative transcriptions that reach back to the Middle Ages, its “spectacular sound that draws in the audience” (El País), and its lively unseated performances.

The evening prior to their Chamber Arts Series concert at Duke Performances, Calefax lead a woodwind master class with Duke student musicians at Nelson Music Room, including a saxophone quartet and an ensemble composed of woodwind players from the Duke Wind Symphony.
