thumb CumbQuinThe Cumberland Quintet will begin its 40th season with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in Wattenbarger Auditorium in the Bryan Fine Arts Building at Tennessee Tech University.

The concert will feature the works of Handel, Mendelssohn, Farkas and a 2009 piece by Peter Lieuwen.

“We have built a solid reputation for unique programming and fine musicianship,” said William Woodworth, TTU’s oboe professor and a member of the quintet. “We have command over a large repertoire of music from all periods and offer the standard woodwind classics, exciting modern works and lighter popular music.”

In addition to Woodworth, the Cumberland Quintet includes TTU professors Wonkak Kim, clarinet; Jeremy Hansen, horn; Roger Martin, flute and James Lotz, bassoon. Each also serves as a principal player in the Bryan Symphony Orchestra.

The concert is free and open to the public.
