The Phillips Family in Concert

The Phillips Family will perform a concert on May 26 featuring two new works by Pittsburgh composer Eugene Phillips: Quintetto Concertante for soprano, flute, two violins and viola, plus his Suite for Viola and Bass Flute. Both works were written at the request of the Phillips family and are being premiered here in Pittsburgh. The Suite for Viola and Bass Flute features the newly invented bass flute, a giant flute sounding two octaves below the standard instrument, likely being heard for the first time in Pittsburgh.
