Visiting Artists: The City of Tomorrow

The first wind quintet to win a gold medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in ten years, The City of Tomorrow aspires to be a leading international ensemble dedicated to the performance and creation of new music for winds.

Since their Fischoff win in May 2011, the quintet has toured the Midwest twice and will tour the West Coast in spring 2013. Performance highlights include the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series in Chicago, Mayo Clinic, the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis, and the Ashland (WI) Chamber Music Society on the scenic shore of Lake Superior. They collaborated with the Portland Cello Project for two performances of Radiohead's classic album OK Computer in Oregon last September.

Most recently, the City of Tomorrow performed on the New Music Edmonton series, preceded by a three-week residency at the Banff Centre. In Banff, they performed and recorded as the wind section of Gruppo Montebello, a new-music chamber orchestra. The ensemble's members studied at the Manhattan School of Music, Northwestern University, Oberlin College, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and the University of Texas.
