WindSync wants to change the way people think about wind quintets. Apex Arts League is bringing the playful group to the Grace Chapel in White’s Chapel UMC on Sunday, September 24 at 6 p.m.
Hailed by the “Houston Chronicle” as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music. The young, adventurous group plays exclusively from memory, including elements of staging and choreography, and focuses on building a connection with audiences through dynamic concert programming and charismatic stage presence.
WindSync is the gold medalist in the National Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh International Competition. The group received the Sylvia Ann Hewlett Adventurous Artist Prize and numerous performance prizes from the CAG competition, including the ensemble’s New York debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Chautauqua Institution, Washington Performing Arts Society’s Music in the Country series, and the Music in the Park Series of The Schubert Club (St. Paul, Minnesota).
The group also relies heavily on a large body of original arrangements of classical masterworks in order to build innovative and thematic programs. WindSync takes a special interest in reaching children, families, and underserved audiences, partnering annually with organizations such as Young Audiences of Houston, Music for Autism, and the Chamber Music Festival of Lexington.
