The Secrest Artists Series at Wake Forest University welcomes wind quintet WindSync for a 7:30 p.m. performance on Thursday, Jan. 21, in Brendle Recital Hall.

Hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is a fresh and energetic wind quintet internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music.  A winner of the 2012 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh International Competition, 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. These five virtuoso players perform exclusively from memory and specialize in creative concerts that inspire and entertain audiences of all ages. The concert at at Brendle Recital Hall will feature pieces by Mozart, Stravinsky, Ravel, Berstein and even Radiohead.

Enrich your concert experience by joining our pre-concert talk at 6:40 p.m. The talk will be led by Wake Forest University Music Department Assistant Professor, Kathryn Levy and feature demonstrations by the WFU student wind quintet.
