Posted:

The South Bend Symphony's Wind Quintet made a stop at the Kroc Center on Thursday morning.  The group consists of a flute, an oboe, a french horn, a bassoon, and a clarinet.  They played a 45 minute concert, with a casual setting where the audience and performers were able to interact with questions. 

The symphony's String Quartet performed also performed at the Kroc Center.  Their performance was in the afternoon.

The Principle oboist for the South Bend Symphony, Jennet Ingle, is excited to introduce live music to people who do not get to typically experience it.  "It's fun for us," Ingle says, "because we get to actually talk and interact with our audience...we are woodwinds, so in the orchestra we sit in the very back and we don't get to actually see people or talk to people."

The symphony's String Quartet performed also performed at the Kroc Center.  Their performance was in the afternoon.

Thursday's performances are part of the "Symphony To Go" program.  The orchestra sends ensemble groups like the string quartet and wind quintet out to schools, retirement homes, and other venues like the Kroc Center.  If you would like to schedule a performance, you can find a registration form here.

The South Bend Symphony has performances throughout the year.  For a list of upcoming concerts visit the South Bend Symphony website.
