The Pennsylvania Quintet
The Pennsylvania Quintet, acclaimed wind chamber music ensemble, has been concertizing since 1984 at major venues on both sides of the Atlantic. Performances include concerts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall in New York City, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Germany, as well as recitals in Nuremberg and Frankfurt. In addition to concerts on many university guest artist series, the Quintet has been Ensemble-in-Residence at the Sedona Chamber Music Festival and a winner of the National Flute Association's international Chamber Music Ensemble Competition. National Public Radio has featured the Quintet in its nationally-syndicated program, Performance Today. The Pennsylvania Quintet can be heard on three compact disc recordings: American Wind Music (Centaur 2085); 20th Century Wind Chamber Music (Centaur 2225); and Recent American Works for Winds (Centaur 2509). The Pennsylvania Quintet is comprised of Penn State faculty members Naomi Seidman (flute), Tim Hurtz (oboe), Anthony Costa (clarinet), Lisa O. Bontrager (horn), and Daryl Durran (bassoon).
