Prairie Winds Quintet on Madeline Island
June 14 @ 8:00 pm
Madeline Island Chamber Music is pleased to present The Prairie Winds Quintet in concert on Madeline Island. Since 1996, The Prairie Winds have been captivating audiences throughout North America with performances that present the finest wind quintet literature. They have performed at numerous celebrated music festivals, including Ravinia, Juneau Jazz and Classics, Chamber Music America’s Education and Residency Institute, and the Britt Festival in Oregon, where the group served as quintet-in-residence for four years. In 2003, the Prairie Winds began their annual residency with Madeline Island Chamber Music offering a chamber music program for collegiate wind players.
In addition to their busy touring schedule, the quintet also has an active radio presence—recent broadcasts include full-length concerts for Chicago’s WFMT “Live from Studio One” program and for listeners of Minnesota Public Radio. The group also has collaborated several times with pianist Ralph Votapek, a Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medalist, with whom they performed works for winds and piano by Mozart, Beethoven, and Poulenc.
