2020-2021 BEMIDJI CONCERT SERIES
October 17, 2020 virtual — The Great Falls Symphony’s Chinook Winds
The Chinook Winds is the resident wind quintet of the Great Falls Symphony in Montana. Their programs include classic wind quintet literature, works featuring local composers and artists, and unique arrangements of popular songs—all executed with a captivating sense of energy that keeps audiences riveted. Whether the group is playing an overture to a Rossini opera, exploring the textures and colors of Ravel, or bringing down the house with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, the Chinook Winds deliver their art with an energy and precision that astounds the ear and a sincere and joyous enthusiasm.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
