The quintet has performed in competitions and festivals throughout the world, with recent residencies at the American Music Festival in North Carolina, Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival in Alaska, and the Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival in South Korea.
As professional music educators, Volante Winds has a strong passion for pedagogy that shines through in their recitals and masterclasses.
