The Scenic Route

Trio; oboe, clarinet, bassoon

Often, the journey is as memorable as the destination. Join Fifth House Ensemble’s reed trio on a road trip to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, passing through rural towns and cities and savoring the songs of nature along the way. Featuring music by Fifth House’s composer Dan Visconti, Jenni Brandon, and Robbie McCarthy, this versatile program transports the audience from the treacherous, winding roads of the mountains to the open dirt roads of the countryside. The reed trio then sets out on an adventure westward to the Giant Sequoias of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in a program where musicians move and groove to the coolest contemporary music mixtape of all time!
