Wavelength Winds is the fourth resident fellowship wind quintet at the University of Maryland. In addition to being seasoned performers and pedagogues, Wavelength's members are accomplished in disciplines ranging from business to international politics. The group's mission is to present diverse, stimulating works and innovative collaborations that resonate with music lovers of all kinds.
Wavelength recently performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in addition to outreach concerts in the D.C. metro. In the rapidly changing musical landscape, Wavelength Winds is continuously seeking intriguing projects and new works. The group is currently working with local artist Konshens the MC in an ongoing project called “Classically Dope,” a fusion of hip-hop and classical music. This collaboration was recently featured in a live interview and performance with Circa media and an hour-long broadcast at One Love Massive in downtown D.C.
In 2018, Wavelength Winds and Avant Projekts are teaming up to create a music, dance, and film collaboration centered on the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. The group is also commissioning works from composers John Steinmetz, Leigha Amick, and Ben Stevenson.
