Debuting in concerts offered across the US during the 2017-18 season and they are rapidly becoming one of the busiest classical music ensembles performing today. Appearing on Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s Musical Arts Series on Wednesday, November 7th, the ensemble offered a varied program of works including pieces by August Walter, Ennio Morricone, Ignacio Cervantes and Bohuslav Martinů.
