WindSync, a modern and energetic wind quintet, will perform in a free, public concert as part of the College’s Public Events Series.

Members of the quintet, described by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” have been internationally recognized for their dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music.

The concernt will start at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in Herrick Chapel. While tickets are free, they must be picked up in advance at the box office in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts. Tickets for this performance will be available from noon to 5 p.m. on weekdays starting Friday, Oct. 28.

WindSync consists of five virtuoso players who perform exclusively from memory and specialize in creative performance. They are:

  • Garrett Hudson, flute
  • Emily Tsai, oboe
  • Julian Hernandez, clarinet
  • Anni Hochhalter, horn
  • Kara LaMoure, bassoon.

This dynamic ensemble focuses on building a connection with audiences through adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence. Critics and audiences alike rave about programs that expand the wind quintet repertoire with newly commissioned works written for WindSync as well as a wide array of original arrangements of classical masterworks.

The recipient of numerous awards and honors, WindSync was awarded the gold medal in the National Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The quintet also won the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh International Competition.
