Breathe Music Collective

B.R.E.A.T.H.E 
Blending Responsive Experiences of Art Towards Healing Empathy

CMH is proud to present a Spring Wind Quintet project – an ongoing collaboration between wind quintets and composers from across the U.S.

The Breathe Collective is a commission and recording project engaging underrepresented composers in the creation of new works for winds that illuminate the significance of breath in an ongoing cultural narrative about systemic racism, police brutality against the black community, and the impact of COVID-19.

Making up the collective are four woodwind quintets from around the country, including Spring Wind Quintet, Adelante Winds from San Antonio, TX, Chione Quintet based in Minneapolis, MN, and the Oregon Wind Quintet located in Eugene, OR.

World Premiere Livestream – Saturday, September 18 at 2:00pm HST

Join us this Saturday for a world premiere of the four short woodwind quintets that were composed for this project. Each piece has been recorded and paired with beautiful and enticing videography to create a more immersive experience for viewers and will be interspersed with live commentary and conversations with the composers and musicians from across the country.
