Triangle Youth Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet

The Triangle Youth Philharmonic Wind Quintet performs repertoire for clarinet, flute, horn, oboe, and bassoon. Our wind quintet has a long history of excellence and success and traveled to Cary’s Sister City, Le Touquet, France in 2014. Our wind quintet benefits from coaching sessions with Mary Boone, Assistant Principal Flute with the North Carolina Symphony, since 2008. This season the group played as a Trio. Here they are performing at the Governor’s Mansion, an Ovations before a NC Symphony Concert, and for children in the library.
