Madera Wind Quintet in Concert at Del Mar College
In 2008, five musicians with a shared love for chamber music came together in Denton, Texas, to form the Madera Wind Quintet. Madera has recorded two albums: Five at Play (2012) and Five Piece Combo, to be released in 2015. Performing for diverse audiences across the United States, they have quickly become known as one of today’s most exciting wind quintets. Exploring the fringes of the quintet repertoire— new music, forgotten gems, original arrangements and music for children — Madera also engages audiences with the classic repertoire and beauty of the wind quintet sonority. Madera premiered the International Joint Wind Quintet Commissioning Project’s winning composition at the 2012 International Double Reed Society and International Horn Society conferences and will be featured at the 2015 Texas Music Educators Association conference. Educational outreach is also important to Madera, whose work includes workshops and clinics for students of all ages.
