about pure winds
The American Prize in Chamber Music Performance
Pure Winds consistently brings music to non-traditional venues and strives to create conversations between performers and audiences.
Pure Winds is an award-winning woodwind quintet based in Lansing, Michigan that promotes outside-of-the-concert-hall musical experiences. The group engages audiences of all ages through residencies, masterclasses, and performances.
Recent engagements have included concerts and clinics at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg KY, University of Michigan - Flint, a week-long tour throughout western Montana, as well as being the featured guest artist for the “Chamber Music Montana” series at the University of Montana. The group creates balanced concerts for audiences by bringing a fresh perspective to standard quintet repertoire while performing new music. Members of the ensemble have performed, taught, and placed in competitions across the U.S. and internationally.
