The Scullery Quintet
Tickets for 15 July 19:30
The Scullery Quintet is a new South African classical and contemporary music crossover group that is made up of a not so traditional string quintet. The ensemble features the standard string quartet configuration: first violin, second violin and viola, the cello role is replaced by double bass, with drum set as the fifth instrument.
This multicultural ensemble was conceived in early 2020 by a group of like minded musicians that got together to share their varied musical influences and keep their musical abilities alive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The quintet plays a variety of music that is not specific to a particular genre, yet the instrumentation implies both the tradition of classical music and of popular music. Performing arrangements and improvising on compositions by their favourite composers which range from Vivaldi, Dvorak , Herbie Hancock , Weather Report to Radiohead, this quintet is by no means purist in its repertoire.
