Dakota Wind QuintetThe Dakota Wind Quintet was formed in 1982 from musicians chosen at a highly competitive audition of professional wind players from across the country. Criteria for selection include musical excellence, diversity of background and experience in orchestral, chamber and solo performance. Since its first year, the quintet has been a success, giving concerts and lecture-demonstrations throughout the Midwest, as well as live performances on Minnesota Public Radio. The majority of their time as a chamber ensemble is spent on tour, performing at concert halls, colleges, community centers and public schools. They also serve as principal players of the South Dakota Symphony, enhancing the quality of orchestra music in this region.
