Compleat Stage is proud to present The Breaking Winds Bassoon Quartet on September 21, 2014 at 10:00pm at Café Istanbul, 2372 St. Claude Ave., New Orleans, LA.
The Breaking Winds Bassoon Quartet (BWBQ) employs a dash of comedy and a full range of uncommon sounds to promote music as a force that inspires and connects. The performance will feature great music for four bassoons accompanied by skits, costumes, props, and dancing.
BWBQ members, Brittany Harrington, Yuki Katayama, Kara LaMoure, and Lauren Yu Ziemba, generate arrangements and compositions based on the music of classical composers, pop musicians, rock bands, tangos, the blues, and even electronic DJs. The result is an enormous repertoire unique to the group, with no two performances alike.
"Scenes from the Old World" with Rebekah & Matthew Atkinson, Harp/Violin brother-sister team, joined by Guests Georges Ellis Mims organist, Gosia Leska violonist, and Albinas Prizgintas organist, in a program of Italian Classic, French Romantic, Spanish Folklore, Scottish traditional and more.
