Created in 1994 by five eminent woodwind performers, each a soloist in his or her own right, Windscape has won a unique place for itself as a vibrant, ever-evolving group of musical individualists whose innovative programs and wonderfully broad repertoire, evoking vivid cultural landscapes, have delighted and transported audiences throughout the United States, Canada and Asia. Artists-in-Residence at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, Windscape is without doubt one of the best ensembles of its kind anywhere in the world. Free.
