Celebration of Life
Bravissimo, Jill! Jill played for 2 hours at the celebration of life for our sibling. She arrived early and was already playing by the time guests arrived. Her beautiful flute music welcomed them in and encouraged a warm, convivial atmosphere for talking and reconnecting. Even though the tone was celebratory and upbeat, there’s no escaping the grief. We had were moments of laughter and moments of tears. Jill’s selection of songs succeeded in delivering comfort and healing when needed and inspiration and joy at just the right times. She is a consummate artist and is lovely to work with. I highly recommend her. I guarantee you will be enchanted by her magic flute.
Classical Trios, Quartets and Quintets: As far as classical music is concerned, the term "quartet" is an ensemble of four players, the most popular in Classical chamber music being the string quartet, which is made up of two violins, a viola and a violoncello. The string quintet is a common type of quintet. It is similar to the string quartet, but with two violas, two violoncellos, or more rarely, the addition of a double bass. Another common grouping in classical music is the wind quintet, usually consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. A 6+ member classical music group is referred to as an orchestra; a small orchestra with fifteen to thirty members (violins, violas, cellos, double basses, woodwind or brass instruments) is called a chamber orchestra.
