The Borealis Wind Quintet will perform Nov. 15 for a concert in the Ruth H. Barrus Concert Hall.
The Borealis Wind Quintet joined together at the Juilliard School of Music, and in 2006 they were nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance category, according to BYU-Idaho’s official website. They were acclaimed as “America’s finest chamber ensemble” at the Grammy Award ceremony.
The quintet will perform “Trois Pieces en Quintette” by Adolphe Deslandres, “March” by John Barrows, “Lincolnshire Posy” by Percy Grainger, “Eight Russian Folk Songs” by Anatoly Liadov, “Three Moods” by Andrey Rubtsov, and “Potpourris Fantastico” by Giulio Briccialdi, according to the BYU-I website.
Zach Caine, a sophomore studying music education, said he is looking forward to the coming show.
“I am most excited to hear the French horn,” Caine said. “I will be looking forward to seeing how they incorporate all the instruments together.”
He said that people tend to go to a show to forget about the world. Caine said this type of event isn’t offered often, and he recommends that people take advantage of attending the event.
Katrina Jacobs, a junior studying therapeutic recreation, said that she not only enjoys listening to music, but she believes there is a lot to gain from experiencing other people’s talents.
Jacobs said she looks forward to the show, and that she knows the environment will invite the spirit.
Admission is $6 for BYU-Idaho students and $12 for the general public.
