Quintocracy, What in the World is a Wind Quintet? – Free Educational Series

Meet Quintocracy & Friends as they break down the ins & outs of a wind quintet and discuss the roles of the instruments in the group.

Educators, students & homeschoolers – Register for this FREE virtual performance with Troy Savings Bank Music Hall Artists-In-Residence, Quintocracy!

The Hall and Quintocracy have created a series of three free, hour-long virtual programs that will introduce local students through performance, lecture-demonstration, and Q & A sessions, to a variety of woodwind instruments, explore “endangered instruments” not commonly found in use today, and discover the importance of collaboration as a group. Quintocracy will use classical chamber pieces, modern takes on popular tunes, and pieces from around the world to showcase a wide range of music and cultures.
