Manitou Winds Perform Jenni Brandon’s “Found Objects: On the Beach”

The Manitou Winds perform Jenni Brandon’s Found Objects: On the Beach for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon Saturday, May 11, 7:30pm at Grace Episcopal Church 341 Washington St, Traverse City, MI 49684, (231) 947-2330. The performer are: Jason McKinney, oboe, Anne Bara, clarinet, and Christina Duperron, bassoon.

Manitou Winds was founded in May 2014 and has become a versatile chamber ensemble of passionate musicians. Seldom performing solely as a wind quintet, we enjoy breaking off into many different configurations aided by the multi-instrumentalists within our ensemble.

Chamber music is often described as a conversation between musicians. Performing without a conductor, each instrument contributes its own unique twist and perspective to the central theme while the musicians work together in shifting roles to keep the piece aloft and in motion. We are excited about this conversation and are eager to share it with audiences.

Found Objects: On the Beach for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon tells of finding objects on the beach – from tumbled stones to sea glass; from driftwood to black feathers on the sand and the seashells that populate the beach as far as the eye can see. A six-movement work approximately 23 minutes.

Premiered by the PEN Trio (Nora Lewis-oboe, Phillip Paglialonga-clarinet, and Eric Van der Veer Varner-bassoon), this work is published by TrevCo Music Publishing on the new PEN Trio Collection Series!
