  • Within a band program, a strong small ensemble program helps strengthen the larger ensemble. The Cumberland Quintet will offer a session dealing with teaching techniques available through use of the small ensemble, including improving listening ability, intonation, use of dynamics, blending and group unity. These techniques will be demonstrated using literature appropriate for the high school wind quintet.

In residence at Tennessee Tech University, the group has toured throughout the US and Europe, performing to a variety of audiences. Members are Roger Martin, flute, William Woodworth, oboe, Anne Thurmond, clarinet, James Lotz, bassoon, and Jeremy Hansen, horn.

The Cumberland Quintet serves on the faculty of the Southeast Chamber Music Institute.

Their fourth CD, Into the Blue, was released in 2006 by Albany Records.
