Avenue Winds presents an international program delving into the intricate and passionate woodwind quintets of Danish composer, Carl Nielsen, as well as Romanian composer, György Ligeti. Avenue Winds engages audiences of all ages with dynamic chamber music performances featuring new works by local San Francisco Bay Area composers as well as the classics of the woodwind quintet repertoire. Performing with artistry and virtuosity, this engaging woodwind quintet has performed in recital at numerous venues, including the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, University of San Francisco, Berkeley Chamber Performances, Manteca Kindred Arts, Del Valle Fine Arts, Trinity Chamber Series, Music on the Hill, and Old First Concerts. Avenue Winds maintains a special interest and enthusiasm for 20th and 21st century works and actively seeks out collaborations with contemporary composers as part of the LoCAL Living Music Project.
