Jackson Symphony Woodwind Quintet plays for local church


JACKSON, Tenn. — The beautiful sounds of the Jackson Symphony Woodwind Quintet played Sunday in a local church.

Guests filled St. Luke’s Episcopal Church to hear what organizers call a magical and romantic selection.

Conductor and music director Peter Shannon said it was nice to sit back, relax and enjoy the music of a portion of the up to 80-member symphony in an intimate setting.

“These are the principal players of the Jackson Symphony orchestra, the principal woodwinds,” Shannon said. “So the people that are up there making the music, we have the flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon, and then we have, actually which is typically in a woodwind quintet, but it’s not a woodwind player, is a french horn player.”

Leaders with the Jackson Symphony said their next performance will be the Starlight Symphony which will take place next month.
