Since their founding in 1992 by the Great Falls Symphony, the Chinook Winds have followed their mission to bring the highest quality chamber music to a wide variety of audiences in the Northwest.
In all performances the Chinook Winds seek to make a real connection with audiences. The quintet accomplishes this by programming a broad range of repertoire that reflect the diverse tastes and backgrounds of their listeners, while also broadening their musical horizons with works that are new, sometimes challenging, but always relevant. 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 that astounds the ear and a sincere and joyous enthusiasm that captures the heart.
Chinook Winds performers include Norman Gonzales on Flute, Paul Chinen on Oboe, Cameron Winrow on Clarinet, Dorian Antipa on Bassoon and Madeline Folkerts on Horn.
