REED 5 represents a bold new direction in wind chamber music, featuring daring instrumentation, diverse and engaging performances, and a repertoire rich in traditional as well as contemporary music. The mission of the ensemble includes outreach education, expansion of a dedicated repertoire for reed quintet, and elevation of the genre to new levels of awareness and execution. The group is comprised of some of the Western Hemisphere’s most promising young wind players from as far away as Colombia and Costa Rica, and they have come together to forge a unique musical presence in American chamber music.  The individual musicians of Reed 5 have performed extensively around the world, have won some of the most prestigious competitions in their fields, and have contributed uniquely to the status of their individual instruments. Now, their talent and energy combine in an exciting new chamber genre, presented with a personal touch.
