The Borealis Wind Quintet, like the Spectacular Aurora Borealis, displays a brilliant array of sparkling color and magic in the music they perform. Nominated for a Grammy in 2006, they are without question the major wind quintet of our time.

Their warm yet commanding stage presence, combined with great music, always captivates the audience. Engaging and delightful, the Borealis brings a fresh sound and an exciting program to each performance. They are recognized for their fundamental contributions to the wind quintet literature with their many commissions, recordings, and editions of rare and traditional music.

Their tours have taken them to major halls throughout the U.S. including Weill Hall (Carnegie) in New York, the Frick Museum, Princeton, Notre Dame, Wolf Trap, Four Seasons in Berkeley, Strathmore in Maryland and the Corning Museum in New York, just to name a few. The Borealis recordings number five with one Grammy nomination. The latest, Borealis En Salon, is both lush and elegant.
