About the event

Join the Wayside Winds for a lively and whimsical hour of woodwind chamber music! Melodies and grooves by Paquito D'Rivera, Jeff Scott, Julio Medaglia, and Maurice Ravel will be brought to life in the beautiful ARCO theater. Expand your musical perspective while experiencing the auditory thrills of flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and French horn combined.

Wayside Winds is a woodwind quintet and chamber group comprised of Cincinnati-based professional musicians who have come together for the past 10 years to have fun making music. Our mission as an ensemble is to grow with our audiences by performing a diverse range of contemporary literature in tandem with the traditional woodwind quintet canon. Some highlights from our past seasons include recitals and performances at the Taft Museum of Art, Murphy Theater at Wilmington College, Mercantile Library on the Salon 21 series, the Christ Church Cathedral lunch recital series, and the Price Hill Creative Community Festival, to name a few. The name Wayside Winds is taken from a line in the poem “Catawba Wine” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, from which the Queen City also derives its nickname.

The current members of Wayside Winds are:

  • Annie Darlin Gordon, flute
  • Leo De La Cruz, oboe
  • Laura Sabo, clarinet
  • Carol Aufmann, bassoon
  • Eric Morin, french horn
  • Emily Toth, french horn

Wayside Winds plan yearly recital programs and masterclasses to present at venues across Greater Cincinnati and are particularly excited about the program we have prepared for the 2023 season. This year’s recital program features a host of diverse and challenging music by composers Paquito D’Rivera, Julio Medaglia, Jeff Scott, Maurice Ravel, Jacques Ibert, and Alexander von Zemlinksy.
