GREENFIELD – Warren Cultural Center welcomes three chamber music groups from the University of Iowa 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 14.

The Fantasie Trio consists of violinist Guowei Qi, cellist Bennet Huang and pianist Chun-Ya Pien. Qi was selected as concertmaster of the 2016 Iowa All-State Orchestra. Huang has earned the top prizes at competitions such as the U.S. Open, VOCE and USIMC. Pien was the state winner of the 2018 MTNA Iowa Young Artist Competition.
Wild Prairie Winds
The Wild Prairie Winds is a professional wind quintet consisting of active teachers and performers living in Iowa City. The group seeks out music that celebrates the rich cultural and musical heritage of the Upper Midwest. Their current program is themed on pastoral works by American composers Eric Ewazen and David Crowe. Both compositions are highly programmatic with vivid imagery of tumultuous white-water rapids, glassy frozen lakes, a small county fair and even a rambunctious barnyard. Their hope is to connect to their audience through music that is new but with fun and relatable themes.
This performance is offered on a donation basis. Come and experience Chamber Music at its highest level on the square in Greenfield.
