Calefax                                             11th Nov 2019 St. Mary’s Church Map

This internationally celebrated reed quintet is one of the treasures of musical life in the Netherlands.

‘…five extremely gifted Dutch gents who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet.’    The Times

The quintet’s impeccable musicianship and their remarkable talent for imaginative programming have set them apart as one of the finest musical collectives in any genre anywhere in the world. This fascinating concert is entitled The Human Organ and will surely be one of the most memorable musical events of the year here in Luton. Unmissable!


'The incredible interaction between the five musicians is what holds them together, a flawless ear for the most wonderful combinations of sounds – and a flair for uncovering hidden treasures.'
