APSU to host The Toomai String Quintet

Toomai

The Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University will host The Toomai String Quintet  on September 27 at 7:30 p.m.

The Toomai String Quintet, winner of the 92nd St. Y’s 2007 “Music Unlocked!” Competition for emerging ensembles, was a pilot ensemble for Carnegie Hall’s “Musical Connections” program that has brought an array of educational programs to students.

Formed in 2007 at the Juilliard School, the quintet is named after Rudyard Kipling’s short story “Toomai of the Elephants” in which a young boy journeys into the jungle to witness the dance of the wild elephants. Toomai String Quintet aspires to cultivate a similar sense of curiosity and discovery by searching for diverse music and sharing it with their audience.

On this concert titled “Songs Without Words”, the quintet will play music derived from or inspired by the vocal tradition.
