Tennessee Tech University’s Cumberland Quintet celebrates 40 years of making music with a concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 3 in the Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building.

The concert will welcome new member and TTU professor of clarinet, Wonkak Kim. The other members of the quintet are professors Roger Martin on flute, William Woodworth on oboe, James Lotz on bassoon and Jeremy Hansen on horn.

The quintet will perform works of a wide variety of musical styles by composers such as Bach, Dvorak, Hindemith, Granados and D’Rivera.

Established in 1972, the Cumberland Quintet has built a solid reputation for unique programming and fine musicianship. The group, which is in residence at TTU, has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe.

The quintet has performed on live radio and television broadcasts, also playing a part in an educational public television series. Their fourth CD, “Into the Blue,” was released in 2006 by Albany Records.

The performance is free and open to the public.
