The final concert of Key West Impromptu Classical Concerts’ 51st anniversary season will feature the Calefax Reed Quintet.      

Calefax is a close-knit ensemble of five reed players united by a shared passion.  For thirty-five years they have been acclaimed in the Netherlands and abroad for their virtuosic playing, brilliant arrangements, and innovative stage presentation.  They are the inventors of a completely new genre:  the reed quintet.  They provide inspiration to wind players from all over the world who follow in their footsteps.  Calefax can be defined as a classical ensemble with a pop mentality.  

Calefax takes an adventurous approach to presenting its programs and has an astonishingly varied repertoire ranging from 1100 to present day.  They perform their own arrangements and newly commissioned compositions for the combination of oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet and bassoon.  

The March 26th program will feature works from George Gershwin, Samuel Barber and Johann Sebastian Bach.  

The concert takes place at 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 26th at St. Paul’s Church at 401 Duval St.  Admission is $20 at the door. Students are admitted free.
