Cassiopeia Wind Quintet

With COVID restrictions surrounding live music gradually lifting, Cassiopeia Wind Quintet undertake a tour celebrating the wonderful world of the wind quintet. Formed in 2010, Irish chamber wind ensemble Cassiopeia Winds performances are marked by vivacity, panache and dedication to the exploration of fine sound worlds. Though the ensemble has the capacity to expand or contract to suit its innovative programming, at its core is a quintet of players whose members are among the finest in the country. The tour includes the premiere of “The sun hovered briefly on the horizon” commissioned especially by the group with funds provided by the Arts Council of Ireland.
