The ensemble Splinter Reeds will be presenting a concert of 21st-century works for reed quintet. They are in residence at Cornish College for the Arts.

Splinter Reeds is the West Coast’s first reed quintet, comprising five innovative musicians with a shared passion for new music. The ensemble is committed to presenting top-tier performances of today’s best contemporary composition, showcasing the vast possibilities of the reed quintet, commissioning new works, and collaborating with fellow musicians and artists.

As a relatively new chamber music genre, the reed quintet is an evolutionary detour from the traditional woodwind quintet with the advantages of a more closely-related instrument family. With approximately 20 professional reed quintets worldwide, Splinter Reeds is explicitly dedicated to cutting-edge composition and expanding the existing reed quintet repertoire through the development of new works by emerging and established composers.
