Hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is a fresh and energetic wind quintet that is internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music. A winner of the 2012 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, this dynamic ensemble focuses on building a connection with audiences through adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence. These five virtuoso players perform exclusively from memory and specialize in creative concerts that inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.
Its program has a distinctly American flavor, featuring masterworks written for wind quintet—including Samuel Barber’s Summer Music—and their own transcriptions of uniquely American music like Coplands’ Variations on Simple Gifts, Bernstein’s Overture to Candide and Gershwin’s Summertime. In addition, WindSync’s mesmerizing version of Ravel’s Bolero will clearly demonstrate why Houston Public Radio called the group “innovative…unconventional and exciting!”
