The Chinook Winds is the resident wind quintet of the Great Falls Symphony. Airs of Eastern Europe showcase a mix of styles that run the gamut, from an angsty, dissonant, and pointy work by György Kurtág that reflects the challenge of living under Soviet rule in occupied Hungary.
Their programs include classic wind quintet literature, works featuring local composers and artists, unique arrangements of popular songs, and a captivating sense of energy that keeps audiences riveted. 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 astounds the ear and a sincere and joyous enthusiasm.
