“Zéphyros played with impeccable precision and rapt lyricism.”
- The Chicago Sun Times

Now in its 19th season, Zéphyros Winds is one of America’s distinguished chamber ensembles. Bringing together five of the finest wind virtuosos of their generation, Zéphyros Winds made its New York concerto debut opening the 2004 Mostly Mozart Festival and has appeared at the nation’s most prestigious concert venues, including The Library of Congress, Wolf Trap, Carnegie’s Weill Hall, Dumbarton Oaks, and Lincoln Center’s “Great Performers Series.”

In 2010, Zéphyros performed in Beijing, China, at the National Centre for the Performing Arts’ May Festival. The Philadelphia Museum of Art engaged Zéphyros to create a program complimenting their exhibition, “Manet and the Sea,” and at the invitation of the French Embassy in Washington, D.C., Zéphyros performed a gala concert celebrating the centenary of Francis Poulenc’s birth. Numerous radio broadcasts include Performance Today for National Public Radio, Public Radio International’s Music from Chautauqua, and WNYC’s Around New York. Its live recording of Irving Fine’s Partita for Woodwind Quintet was released on Bridge Records. Zéphyros has given master classes at the Yale University School of Music, The Juilliard School, Eastman School of Music and Idyllwild Arts Academy.

Taking its name from the Greek god of the West Wind, Zéphyros Winds first gained national attention in 1995, when, one year after its formation, it won both the First and Grand prizes at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, becoming the first wind quintet in the competition’s 22-year history to do so.
