The second Wind Quintet Invitational offers a half day of music making for student and adult musicians interested in wind quintet repertoire.  Come play your instrument (oboe, flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn) with peers and mentors as you learn together and discuss techniques particular to your instrument.  Enjoy the camaraderie and the rewards of putting together an entire piece in the final session.   You will gain a newfound appreciation for chamber music and encouragement to continue learning and listening.
