The brilliant WA ensemble Wind Quintet Plus will be replacing Ensemble Q for a new concert on the same date.

 Combining flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn with percussion, Wind Quintet Plus performs music from diverse styles with colour, texture, drive and groove.

At this concert, they will be playing a program of wind quintet favourites from Debussy, Edwards, Piazzolla and more.

The ensemble consists of well-known musicians who have performed with the WA Symphony Orchestra, the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Australian Chamber Orchestra amongst many others. They are recognised for their dynamic performances, eclectic programming, imaginative collaborations and outreach endeavours that connect with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. 

In 2021, Wind Quintet Plus performed with renowned soprano Sara Macliver for the fine music series One and Many for Perth Festival. They presented reimagined works from over nine centuries of music curated by Artistic Director Iain Grandage, and a new work, Black Giants, by Rebecca Erin Smith, commissioned by Tura New Music for the festival.
