GOAL REACHED!!!

That's right, we have reached our fundraising goal and would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all who have supported us. BUT, if you're feeling like you missed out, would like to pre-order a CD, or want to get in on some of our awesome perks (some of which are only available during this campaign--that's it, if you want a custom arrangement or handmade Chinook Winds mug, this is your ONLY chance!), we are still able to accept donations here until March 1. Anything over our goal will help as a buffer in case of unforeseen expenses and anything left over after the project will be held in a Professional Development account which we will use to jump start future projects. Thanks again for all the support and if you haven't yet had a chance, there's still time! 

If you would like to donate to the Great Falls Symphony to help keep all of the wonderful music it brings (including us and our counterparts, the Cascade Quartet) to our community, you can find more information about that HERE.

The Chinook Winds is the resident wind quintet of the Great Falls Symphony in Montana. After receiving requests from audiences at home and throughout the Northwest, we are excited to announce that we are working on creating our first CD!

This CD will feature previously unrecorded works for quintet such as arrangements of the overture from Candide by Leonard Bernstein and Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. We will also record two lesser known but terrific works by Icelandic composers, Blær and Intarsia. In keeping with the quintet's tradition of presenting diverse repertoire and relevant performances, this selection is sure to excite and reward listeners while spreading great music we believe should be more widely heard.

We are looking forward to sharing these pieces with the world, as they showcase the wind quintet’s versatility in creating compelling textures and colors.
