The Woodwind Quintet is one of Navy Band Southwest’s two superb chamber ensembles. With an extensive repertoire perfect for public and school concerts, dinner or reception music, and much more, the Woodwind Quintet is perfect for a wide range of occasions.
This ensemble blends the individual sounds of the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone to create a highly eclectic sonic palette. They bring this unique sound to works from various genres including music from the Classical and Romantic eras, the contemporary music of Broadway and Hollywood, and the works of many modern composers.
The Navy Band Southwest Woodwind Quintet has been a groundbreaking force in the Navy Music Program. In October 2000, they were the first woodwind quintet in Navy Music to do an extended tour in support of Navy Recruiting. On this tour they performed for audiences at colleges and universities in the Denver, Colorado area.
Without a doubt, the Woodwind Quintet will lend an atmosphere of elegance to any event.
