Two women composers are featured on this program. Oboist and composer, Alyssa Morris’ Motion (2010) for wind quartet focuses on four different “motions. The movements include: Bike Ride, Stretch, Tip Toe, and Strut. Jessie Montgomery’s Strum (2015) for string quartet is an energetic and vibrant work. Starting in 1999, Montgomery became involved with the Sphinx Organization, a Detroit-based nonprofit that supports young African American and Latinx string players. She now serves as composer-in-residence for the Sphinx Virtuosi, the organization’s professional touring ensemble. Brahms’ grand Horn Trio and Beethoven’s Quintet for Piano and Winds op.16 round out the program.
