Wavelength Winds is the fourth resident fellowship wind quintet at the University of Maryland. In addition to being seasoned performers and pedagogues, Wavelength's members are accomplished in disciplines ranging from business to international politics. Our mission is to present diverse, stimulating works and innovative collaborations that resonate with music lovers of all kinds.
This summer, Wavelength Winds and Avant Projekts are creating a music, dance, and film collaboration that tells the story of Sleeping Beauty. This “classical” music video will be distributed for free on social media to connect with modern audiences on the digital concert stage.
Wavelength is also working with local artist Konshens the MC in an ongoing project called “Classically Dope,” a fusion of hip-hop and classical music. This collaboration was recently featured in a live interview and performance with Circa media and an hour-long broadcast at One Love Massive in downtown D.C.
The ensemble is co-commissioning a quintet by John Steinmetz, for which we will be mentioned on the printed music and will receive exclusive performing rights for one year. Two more commissions from Leigha Amick and Ben Stevenson are in progress.
Projects such as these are made possible by the generous support and contributions of the University of Maryland/The Clarice, collaborative artists, and patrons. Contact us if you’d like to sponsor a project or collaborate with us!
