Event details

A vivacious program for wind quintet finds this superb group of musicians in their element. Musica Viva’s inaugural FutureMakers (2016/17), Arcadia Winds are making a great career for themselves. Since their ‘graduation’ from this innovative musical leadership program at the end of 2017, this superb group of musicians have released their eponymous debut EP, launched their own Australian composition prize, and are developing a unique online portal for Australian wind music.

This vivacious program finds them in their element: Percy Grainger’s delicious Walking Tune and Júlio Medaglia’s exuberant South American-flavoured suite bookend two classics of the genre in Taffanel’s G minor Quintet and Barber’s beautiful, evocative Summer Music.
