dwDorian Wind Quintet

Since its formation at Tanglewood in 1961, the Dorian Wind Quintet has performed repertoire ranging from the Baroque to Pulitzer Prize-winning commissions in the world's most renowned concert halls. The quintet has literally been around the world -- concertizing in forty-nine of the fifty United States and Canada, touring Europe eighteen times, and playing throughout the Middle East, India, Africa and Asia. The Dorian made history as the first wind quintet to appear at Carnegie Hall.

The Dorian Quintet has served as resident ensemble for several institutions including Mannes College of Music, the State University of New York System, Tanglewood and the International Festival Institute at Round Top.

Each member of the Dorian is a virtuoso in his/her own right and has been associated with the most prominent performing ensembles and educational institutions in the world.
