Our 1st Commissioning Project!
Coming soon! A Madison craft beer-inspired woodwind quintet by beer-loving composer Brian DuFord for beer-loving ensemble Black Marigold.
Update - May 16th: We have word from Brian that composition is underway and this piece is shaping up to be as unique as each of the 50 Madison brews we tasted.
Imagine assorted pints of your favorite Madison craft beers - the crisp hops, rich malts and smooth textures. Imagine Wisconsin’s own Black Marigold teasing your ears with the sublime sound and multicolored hues of a woodwind quintet. Now…imagine those two, brought together in an exciting, entertaining and mouth-watering new musical work. Ahhh, can you hear and taste it now?
