Elements

ˈɛlɪm(ə)nt/
plural noun
1. parts into which a whole may be formed.

Each member of the group represents an element and each element comes together to form a whole quintet. Similarly, elements can be taken away or added to form another whole ensemble, expanding or reducing in size according to the requirements of a chosen program. The flexible nature of the group allows for the possibility of collaboration and creative adaptation. For now though, we remain a woodwind quintet and will explore the depth of repertoire available to us in this form.

As a collection of wind players, our vision is to promote woodwind repertoire, both new and old. Our creative process is not limited to musical interpretation and performance, but also in working with composers, to commission new works and expand the library of repertoire and sound colour available to wind players.

Each musician within the group is an active orchestral musician and educator and between the five of them, have a vast amount of experience which they are passionate about passing on to younger and aspiring musicians.
