The Five Families Ensemble, directed by Monk Rowe, stretches the boundaries of the traditional chamber ensemble by combining sounds from each of the four instrument groups (brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings) with a fifth contribution from the human voice.

Members of the Five Families are Tom McGrath (percussion); Nick Fields (trumpet, baritone horn & vocals); Monk Rowe (woodwinds and keyboards); Kristen Kopf (cello); and Liz Simchik (violin & vocals).

Their repertoire is arranged specifically for the group and ranges from Beethoven to Brubeck to the Blues, as well as original compositions.

Colgate University students FREE with student ID. 

Tickets are $15. Kids aged 12 and under are FREE when accompanied by a ticketed parent/guardian. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit
