PULLMAN — The Solstice Wind Quintet will present a concert as part of the Faculty Artist Series at WSU at 8 p.m. Friday, April 10, in Bryan Hall Theatre.

The program will feature a work composed by Cynthia Folio which is based on literary quotes from Mark Twain, Sir Francis Bacon, Aristotle, Bertold Brecht and Baltazar Gracian. The monumental masterpiece for Wind Quintet by Carl Nielsen and the late Romantic Sextet by Carl Reinecke will also be performed.
