The bassoon quartet Breaking Winds will appear at Lower Columbia College on Sunday, Sept. 24.
The group, which began in 2008 as a project of undergraduate students at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., will perform at 3 p.m. at The Rose Center for the Arts on the LCC campus, 1600 Maple St., Longview.
The group performs a blend of classical, Top 40, cinematic and blues music.
“Every Breaking Winds performance showcases the women’s wit, virtuosic bassoon techniques, and theatrics. Together, they aim to demonstrate that music and laughter are universal languages,” according to a press release about the performance.
The bassoonists are the first concert for the 2017-2018 season at the Rose Center, presented by the Longview-Kelso Community Concert Association. The association — an all-volunteer, nonprofit board — has been presenting artists to the community since 1937. The association presents the concert series at the Rose Center in partnership with the Lower Columbia College Foundation through the Hanson Endowment.
Tickets for Breaking Winds are $25 for adults and $10 for students. Season tickets are also available for $75 for adults, $40 students and $175 for families.
