This year’s Intersections Festival at the Atlas on H St focuses on Where the Art World and the Real World Intersect. When we saw this year’s theme, we knew that we had to be a part of it! One of the main purposes of the LeDroit Chamber Players is to make our musical world meet the real world in unexpected places and in creative ways. This program will certainly do that! When discussing Sergei Prokofiev and ballet, most people would be drawn to Romeo and Juliet or Cinderella—some of his most famous ballet music. However, audiences at the Atlas will be delighted by Prokofiev’s quirky ballet inspired Quintet in G minor op. 39 for Oboe, Clarinet, Violin, Viola and Double Bass. The program will also include arrangements of Brahms’ most well known and stunningly beautiful piano works, as well as a nod to the music of Leonard Bernstein.
Jamie Roberts, oboe
