In the second of three concert weekends in Heidelberg University's New Music Spring 2014 Festival, the school is to welcome The Akropolis Reed Quintet Saturday.
Members of the quintet are to conduct a panel discussion on music entrepreneurship at 3 p.m., followed by a performance at 7 p.m., both in Brenneman Music Hall.
Both events are free.
Founded at the University of Michigan in 2009, Akropolis performs repertoire that highlights modern composition. Akropolis' initiatives have produced more than 20 new works and arrangements, the continued growth of a sheet music catalog called Akropolis Composition and the production of a Youtube series of world premiers and new arrangements.
Akropolis consists of Tim Gocklin (oboe), Kari Dion (clarinet), Matt Landry (saxophone), Andrew Koeppe (bass clarinet) and Ryan Reynolds (bassoon).
