Artist Spotlight: Arabesque Winds

Arabesque Winds have presented educational concerts throughout Rochester as participants in the Eastman?s "Music For All" program. In January of 2009, they collaborated with the Rochester City Ballet to present a children's program featuring Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf." They have also served as ensemble-in-residence in the public schools of New York State, Texas, New Jersey, and Washington DC. The group premiered a woodwind quintet concerto by Baljinder Sekhon II alongside young Rochester area music students in June 2009. They were resident performers and teachers at the Atlantic Music Festival in the summer of 2009.

Arabesque Winds have recently won the Coleman-Saunders Prize in the 63rd Annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition, the Grand Prize of the 2008 International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition, the Harvard Musical Association?s 2009 Foote Prize, and Second Prize at the Henri Tomasi International Woodwind Quintet Competition in Marseille, France.
