About Us

Relevents Wind Quintet is the Faculty Ensemble in Residence at High Point University. The Quintet was founded in 2008 by a group of professional musicians in Greensboro, NC who were looking for the exceptional collaborative experience that only chamber music can provide. The group has performed throughout Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia and made their international debut on a tour of southern Germany in March, 2009. Dedicated performers and teachers, the individual members are all on the faculty of High Point University, maintain active teaching appointments with other local universities throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, and maintain extensive performance schedules with symphonies throughout North Carolina and the southeast.

Relevents is committed to removing the traditional boundaries that exist between the performer and the audience. By performing in both traditional and non-traditional venues, Relevents works to welcome new fans to the world of wind quintet repertoire.

“We strive to present exciting and diverse programs, performing standards as well as new works for the wind quintet developed through close collaboration with up and coming composers. We are committed to performing music that is relevant to each of us and to our time.”
