Now celebrating their 10th anniversary, the Akropolis Reed Quintet was founded in 2009 at the University of Michigan and is the first reed quintet in history to win a Fischoff Gold Medal (2014), Grand Prize at the Plowman and MTNA national competitions, and 6 national chamber music prizes in total. Hailed by Fanfare for its “imagination, infallible musicality, and huge vitality,” Akropolis has performed from Juneau to Abu Dhabi and has won juried showcases at six national conferences. Winner of the 2015 Fischoff Educator Award, Akropolis conducts extensive educational residencies and reached over 10,000 K-12 children in 2018 alone. Winner of a coveted 2018 Chamber Music America Commissioning Grant, Akropolis has premiered more than 50 reed quintet works and recorded three albums, including their 2017 release, The Space Between Us, which the San Francisco Chronicle calls, “pure gold.” Akropolis has collaborated with Shara Nova, David Shifrin, the Dover Quartet, and numerous eminent artists. Akropolis is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and has received consecutive grants from the National Endowment for the Arts for their annual Together We Sound festival in Detroit alongside support from numerous foundations.
