WindSync has established itself as a vibrant chamber ensemble performing wind quintet masterworks, adapting beloved music to their instrumentation, and championing new works by today’s composers. The quintet eliminates the “fourth wall” between musicians and audience by often performing from memory, creating an intimate connection. This personal performance style, combined with the ensemble’s three-pronged mission of artistry, education, and community-building, lends WindSync its reputation as “a group of virtuosos who are also wonderful people, too” (Alison Young, Classical MPR).
The ensemble’s educational work includes tour stops at public schools and ongoing collaborations with the Sistema Ravinia and Houston Youth Symphony Coda social music programs. WindSync has been featured in educational concerts presented by the Seattle Symphony, the Hobby Center, and Orli Shaham’s “Baby Got Bach,” and the ensemble’s concerts for young people reach over 5,000 students per year. The quintet has served as ensemble-in-residence for Adelphi University, the Chamber Music Festival of Lexington (KY), the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, and the Grand Teton Music Festival.
