Performer Details

Performer Bio Synopsis

Pure Winds is an award-winning woodwind quintet based in Lansing, Michigan that promotes outside-of-the-concert-hall musical experiences. The group engages audiences of all ages through residencies, masterclasses, and performances. Pure Winds consistently brings music to non-traditional venues and strives to create conversations between performers and audiences. Recent engagements have included residencies at the University of the Cumberlands and the University of Michigan–Flint, conference presentations for the Midwest Clinic, the Kentucky Music Educators Association, and the Indiana Music Educators Association, and a week-long tour throughout western Montana. The group creates balanced concerts for audiences by bringing a fresh perspective to standard quintet repertoire while performing new music. Members of the ensemble have performed, taught, and placed in competitions across the U.S. and internationally. Pure Winds recently finished recording its debut album, which is set for release in 2022.
