(Stamford) Sunday, June 17, at 3pm, Friends of Music of Stamford NY presents WindSync, a prizewinning Houston-based wind quintet. The ensemble is recognized for dramatic, highly thematic, fully memorized concert presentations that feature landmark quintets, new works by American composers, and premiere arrangements of standard repertoire. Garrett Hudson (flute), Emily Tsai (oboe), Julian Hernandez (clarinet), Kara LaMoure (bassoon), and Anni Hochhalter (French horn) take a special interest in reaching children, families, and underserved audiences with the goal of increasing accessibility and cultural significance of wind chamber music.
In its ninth season, WindSync tours nationally and internationally, appearing at venues including the Met Museum, Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congress. Part of the burgeoning creative placemaking movement, the group has recently focused on activating public spaces via music in Texas and Louisiana.
