Fifth House Ensemble & Jason Vieaux

December 4, 2017, 8:00 pm

The dynamic Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble has been praised by the New York Times for its “conviction, authority, and finesse.” John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune wrote, “You have to admire the sheer imaginative chutzpah these young performers bring to their envelope-pushing enterprise.”  Committed to innovative programming and educational outreach, the ensemble presents performances in traditional and untraditional venues and establishes partnerships with educational institutions and regularly collaborates with artists of other disciplines.

They returns to the WFMT Levin Performance Studio along with guitarist Jason Vieaux with an exciting and varied program of new music.

The ensemble consists of:

Kim Sopata Fleuchaus, flute
