The Borealis Wind Quintet will perform at Tennessee Tech University’s Wattenbarger Auditorium of the Bryan Fine Arts Building at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18.

The quintet has been acclaimed as one of America’s preeminent chamber ensembles.

In 2006, it was nominated for a Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance.

The Borealis has won numerous other awards and prizes, including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and Chamber Music America.

Peter G. Davies of the New York Times described one concert as “a polished, elegantly turned performance…each work received lively, expert and musicianly treatment by this skilled and exceptionally talented chamber group.”

The Borealis Quintet includes Katherine Fink on the flute, Tamar Beach Wells on the oboe, Kathryn Taylor on the clarinet, Wayne Hileman on the bassoon and Dan Culpepper on the horn.

A Center Stage event, the show is free and open to the public.
