“Wind Sync is a wind quintet like you’ve never heard or seen, and they’re made up of a group of virtuosos who are also wonderful people, too.” – Alison Young, Classical MPR Described as joyful and charismatic, the Houston-based ensemble of wind musicians will appear in concert Friday, March 11 at 7 p.m. at St. James Episcopal Church in Alexandria. The performance is free and open to the public, part of the church’s ongoing community concert series, funded by the McCormick Smith Fund Inc.
Wind Sync formed at Rice University in 2009 and launched an international touring career after winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition and Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. The five young musicians, performing with wind instruments that include the flute, clarinet, French horn, oboe and bassoon, will offer an entirely memorized program of masterworks at St. James, as well as original adaptations of other genres. A reception in the Parish Hall will follow the concert.
