PLATTEVILLE, Wis. —The Center for the Arts at the University of Wisconsin- Platteville will present the Wingra Woodwind Quintet on Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. in the Nohr Gallery in Ullsvik Hall.

Since its formation in 1965, the Wingra Woodwind Quintet has established a tradition of artistic and teaching excellence. The quintet is one of the three ensemble-in-residence groups at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music. The ensemble has been featured in performances at numerous national conferences. In addition to its statewide touring, the quintet has been invited to perform at college campuses all across the United States.

Wingra’s faculty artists include Stephanie Jutt, flute; Marc Fink, oboe; Linda Bartley, clarinet; Marc Vallon, bassoon; and Linda Kimball, horn. All of the musicians bring with them extensive musical backgrounds and experiences.  Many of the members perform with local prominent musical groups such as the Madison Symphony Orchestra and the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra.

A New York Times critic reviewing the ensemble’s Carnegie Hall concert stated, “The performances were consistently sophisticated, sensitive and thoroughly vital.”
