The musicians forming the Guards Wind Quintet have been working together for many years as a Quintet and within the five Foot Guards Bands. Their repertoire is varied and covers all standard classical repertoire to contemporary and lighter music. They play together on the concert platform as well as functions, corporate events and weddings. They have appeared recently at London College of Music, in the Guards Chapel Recital Series, and Westminster Music Library’s concert series. The players have busy careers combining solo work, chamber music and freelancing and their experience includes work with Scottish Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Welsh National Opera, West End shows and session work.
