Founded in 2017, the National Chamber Winds members comprise some of the finest musicians in the National Capital Region, many of whom perform in our nation’s elite service bands. The ensemble’s core instrumentation of pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, horns, and bassoons with double bass, affords the opportunity to perform a vast array of repertoire from large-scale chamber wind works to solo pieces.
The National Chamber Winds have received widespread praise for their innovative programming and invigorating performances. During their brief history, they have left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape of the greater Washington, D.C. area and beyond. Their artistry was recently recognized with an invitation to perform at the prestigious Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic.
The National Chamber Winds are committed to mentoring the next generation of musicians. Recent community engagements include a combined concert with the Atholton (MD) High School Chamber Winds, a residency at the York College of Pennsylvania Music Department, and an invitation to serve as the lab ensemble for the H. Robert Reynolds Conducting Institute in Chicago.
