Music is a fabulous way to ring in the holiday spirit, and what better way to do that than a concert? Come see and hear the renowned United States Coast Guard Woodwind Quintet as they perform a free concert open to the public on Saturday December 1st, 2012 at the Custom House Maritime Museum from 1 to 3PM.
Members of the United States Coast Guard Woodwind Quintet - FRONT: MU1 Laura Pirruccello, flute; MUC Barrett Seals, oboe; BACK: MUC Chantal Hovendick, clarinet; MUCS Aimee Page, french horn and MUC Brooke Allen, bassoon.
The Woodwind Quintet was formed in 1977 and has played at many high-profile events including the dedication of the Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington D.C., as well as the Vice President’s reception during the inaugural celebrations for Ronald W. Reagan, and aboard the Coast Guard Barque Eagle during Liberty Weekend in 1986. In addition, the Quintet performs at Coast Guard dinners and receptions, music festivals, universities, and even on national television. Most recently the group has recorded La Nouvelle Orleans by Lalo Schifrin for release on a disk featuring the United States Coast Guard Band Chamber Players.
Come experience the velvety sounds of the oboe, clarinet, and bassoon mixed with the playful whistle of the flute, and the bright resonance of the French horn, all adding to the festive spirit that welcomes the holiday season.
