Free Concert by 
The Five Families Ensemble


Saturday, March 28 at 2 p.m.

The Five Families Ensemble presents an alternative to the traditional chamber ensemble by combining one instrument from each of the four instrument groups (brass, strings, percussion and woodwinds) and adding a fifth family, that of the human voice. Original compositions and arrangements that draw from jazz, blues and both traditional and contemporary classical music are scored for the ensemble by Monk Rowe.

The members of The Five Families Ensemble are well known throughout Central New York as versatile performers and music educators: Liz Simchick (violin and vocal), Nick Fields (trumpet, baritone horn and vocal), Kristen Kopf (cello), Tom McGrath (percussion and keyboard) and Monk Rowe (woodwinds and piano).

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.
