Quint-Essential Winds debuted in 2008 bringing together five musicians with more
than 150 years of collective study and performance spanning three continents.
While changes in schedules and priorities have led to variations in the makeup of the
group, commitment to quality performance and programming flexibility has endured. We
maintain an extensive library and can play everything from a Bach Fugue to Basin Street
Blues. The quintet has appeared at a variety of venues and in numerous communities in
Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts performing recitals and at wine tastings,
weddings, dinners and Christmas parties. We have also designed programs for
young audiences, featuring pieces for quintet and narrator.
