On March 23, 2023, at 7 p.m., Tel Aviv Wind Quintet will perform “Peter and the Wolf” at the Gesa Power House Theatre. As part of the Little Watts Family Series, this event is sponsored in part by Walla Walla Valley Honda and AAUW-Walla Walla.
The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet is one of the most successful chamber music ensembles in Israel today. The group was established in 2009 by five young Israeli musicians seeking to expose a broader audience to the wonderful wind repertoire, as well as commissioned works. By combining music with other art forms such as theater and movement, the Quintet also aims to build upon and expand the existing concert format.
“A charming chamber arrangement of ‘Peter and the Wolf’. The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet members, directed by Ari Teperberg, have created a new format… Five players are responsible for the solo parts, the orchestral playing, and even the narration, the story telling, and the acting. This format works particularly well thanks to the talents of Quintet… the excellent playing of this group was no surprise, but the graceful and humorous theatrical presentation made this show especially enjoyable.”
—Amir Mandel, ‘Weekly recommendation’, Ha’aretz, November 25, 2020
The Quintet is supported by the Israeli Ministry of Culture. It was awarded the Eilam Prize for Israeli Performers (2011) as well as grants from the Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, Haifa Arts Foundation, Ronen Foundation, and the Israel Lottery Council for Culture & Arts.
