WindSync presents a space-themed program that explores music at the crossroads of science, science fiction, and the human imagination. New arrangements of classic works by Holst and Buxtehude take cosmic inspiration from a time when visiting space was a distant dream. Miguel del Aguila’s monumental Quintet No. 2 invokes origin stories, far away places, and folk traditions. In a nod to the ensemble’s hometown of Houston and the achievements of NASA, the program features a suite of pieces from the Voyager Golden Record curated by astrophysicist Carl Sagan. The selections take listeners on a whirlwind tour of music history from Bach to Chuck Berry.

Hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is a fresh and energetic wind quintet internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music.  Gold Medalist in the National Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh International Competition, this dynamic ensemble focuses on building a connection with audiences through adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence.  Critics and audiences alike rave about programs that expand the wind quintet repertoire with newly commissioned works written for WindSync as well as a wide array of original arrangements of classical masterworks. These five virtuoso players perform exclusively from memory and specialize in creative concerts that inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.
