Wavelength Winds was the University of Maryland’s premier fellowship wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn) in residence from 2017-2019. The ensemble commissioned new music, created innovative projects, and engaged in collaborations that put classical music in a culturally relevant context. In their two-year residency, they recorded and produced a classical music video, commissioned four new works for wind quintet, recorded two albums in the Classically Dope project, and composed and arranged music for wind quintet, piano, and rapper.
The group was featured by DC Public Radio, Circa Media, One Love Massive, the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment, Emancipation Day at Freedom Plaza, NextNOW Fest, and Washington Performing Arts in addition to performing twice at the Kennedy Center.
After the completion of their residency, Wavelength’s members took performing and administrative jobs around the country. The Classically Dope project continues on with the release of their second album in 2020.
