Zephyros Winds

“Inherently colorful ensemble…They play with depth of communicative élan [and] mature artistry. This is a special ensemble.”    

  — San Francisco Classical Voice

Zéphyros Winds has appeared at the nation’s most prestigious concert venues, including The Mostly Mozart Festival, the Library of Congress, Wolf Trap, Carnegie’s Weill Hall, Lincoln Center, and Dumbarton Oaks.
