Gems: Woodwind Quintets for High School Performers

  • Quality pieces for young woodwind quintets are vital as early experiences in chamber music performance. Presented here are excerpts from fifteen outstanding high school-appropriate woodwind quintets. These works are fun and have parts that are engaging for all members of the quintet. While some are standard in the quintet repertoire, a number are less familiar gems. Selections vary in terms of style, time period, culture, and country. We will discuss and perform selections from all of them.

  • The Powers Woodwind Quintet is in residence at Central Michigan University‚Äôs School of Music. The group, founded in 1963, has performed throughout the central United States and at several venues in Japan.

They also appear with the Crescent Duo and the Eclectic Trio, among others. The quintet can be heard on "The Brementown Musicians" and "Clarinet Chamber Music of Alvin Etler," both on Centaur Records. The group also has newly released compact disc "White Pine Music" featuring several gems of the high school woodwind quintet literature.
