Puget Sounds Wind Quintet members perform with Village Theatre, Fifth Avenue Theatre, Symphony Tacoma, Seattle Symphony/Opera and other groups, and come together to produce their own music in the form of a quintet representing the winds of the orchestra.
The Living & Breathing Wind Music program presents an array of contemporary classical selections by five living composers, ranging from the literal representation of nature sounds in Eric Ewazen’s Roaring Fork to the aleatoric In C Dorian by Frank Ticheli, and styles in between. Hear the atonal and abstract, yet alternatingly angry and lyrical 5-4-3 Miniatures by Don Bowyer; Valerie Coleman’s upbeat work named after the Swahili word for unity, Emoja; and a world premiere by northwest composer David P. Jones that stretches the technical limitations of wind instruments.
This program is free and open to the public, with gracious support provided through the Music Performance Trust Fund and the Musicians’ Club of Seattle.
