The Borealis Wind Quintet has been acclaimed as one of America's preeminent chamber ensembles, blending the disparate voices of the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn into a balanced yet effervescent chamber music experience. Combining innovative programming with a lively style, the quintet has set themselves apart in the world of chamber music through an irresistible energy and creative arrangements. Their instrumental renditions of opera's finest arias have raised eyes and earned them rave reviews. The Washington Post has praised their “sensitive collaborations that have a sophisticated and cosmopolitan air,” while The Philadelphia Inquirer has said that “they demonstrated the sort of rapport that characterizes the very best chamber playing.” Winner of numerous competitions and awards, the Borealis Wind Quintet has been named one of High Fidelity magazine's “Young Artists to Watch.”
