HIGH POINT, N.C., March 30, 2011 ? High Point University will feature the talents of the Relevents Wind Quintet in a special performance in the Hayworth Chapel on campus. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on April 1. No tickets are required.
The Relevents Wind Quintet, which features HPU?s own instructor of flute Laura Stevens, was founded in 2008 by a group of professional musicians looking for a collaborative experience that only chamber music can provide. The group has performed throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina and made their critically acclaimed international debut on a tour of southern Germany in March 2009. Dedicated performers and teachers, the individual members maintain active teaching appointments with local universities throughout North Carolina and South Carolina as well as extensive performance schedules with symphonies throughout the southeast.
?Relevents is committed to removing the traditional boundaries that exist between the performer and the audience,? says Stevens. ?By performing in both traditional and non-traditional venues, we work to welcome new fans to the world of wind quintet repertoire. We strive to present exciting and diverse programs, performing standards as well as new works for the wind quintet developed through close collaboration with up and coming composers.?
