Join us Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM Eastern in May for a livestream concert series featuring area musicians, broadcasting from the First Baptist Church in downtown Kalamazoo.

Our livestream on May 13 features a performance from the quintet of Steven Foster, horn; Tess Miller, flute; Gretchen Morse, oboe; Tasha Yehuda-Warren, clarinet; and William Wheeler, bassoon – collectively known as Durant Street Winds.

Founded in 2013, the quintet is named after the street that was home to many group rehearsals.
