A dynamic young wind quintet, Windsync, will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 3, in the Duane Smith Auditorium in Los Alamos. The event is the final offering in the Los Alamos Concert Association’s season.
WindSync won a gold medal in the 2016 Fishchoff National Chamber Music Competition, the largest competition of its kind in the world. Based in Houston, WindSync’s busy touring schedule has included recent performances in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Shanghai’s Oriental Arts Center.
The members of WindSync connect with their audience by performing exclusively from memory. Their wide ranging repertoire includes iconic wind quintets, their own arrangements and a special focus on commissions from American composers.
In Los Alamos, WindSync will perform a quintet for winds by Uruguayan-American composer Miguel Del Aguila, a Suite from Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and the ensemble’s own Voyager Golden Record Suite based on the music included in the audio time capsule launched aboard the Voyager spacecraft in 1977.
The concert venue, the Duane Smith Auditorium at 1300 Diamond Dr., has recently reopened after construction of a new lobby and other public areas. Audiences can expect a much-improved concert-going experience.
Tickets ($35) are available at the Lensic box office in Santa Fe, in Los Alamos at CB FOX and Smith’s Marketplace, at Smith’s in White Rock, electronically at www.ticketssantafe.com and at the door. Continuing a long Los Alamos Concert Association tradition, free tickets for students ages 6-18 are available at Los Alamos outlets and at the door.
