ABOUT AKROPOLIS REED QUINTET
Celebrating their 13th year making music with “faultless detail and refreshing artistry” (I Care if You Listen) as a “collective voice driven by real excitement and a sense of adventure” (The Wire), Akropolis has “taken the chamber music world by storm” (Fanfare). As the first reed quintet to grace the Billboard Charts (May 2021), the untamed band’s 5 reed players and entrepreneurs are united by a shared passion: to make music that sparks joy and wonder.
