The winners of the Fischoff Competition Wind Division, Akropolis Reed Quintet, will perform at Wabash College on Sunday, September 21 at 8 p.m. in Salter Hall in the Fine Arts Center on the Wabash College campus.

Championing the next generation of maverick musicians, Akropolis is also winner of the 2015 Fischoff Educator Award.
