Matthew Howells/flute, Alice McArthur/oboe, Thomas Porter/bassoon, Michael Barr/french horn, Charlie Sheppard-Vine, clarinet
Formed in 2012 at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Sirocco Winds are a dynamic and professional wind quintet. Based in Glasgow, they pride themselves on being a young, enthusiastic and vibrant group. Their individual achievements include performing with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and performing concerts across the UK. Their group repertoire includes a variety of styles from wind quintet standards and rarely performed works, to their own personal arrangements or new commissions. Recent successes include winning the Governors’ Recital Prize for Chamber Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and being invited to perform at the prestigious Commonwealth Gala Concert in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
The concert will feature works by Gershwin, Shostakovich and Piazzolla and their own versions of 'Tea For Two' and 'Loch Lomond'.
