Dordt University to host Dakota Winds Quintet (POSTPONED)


Due to the impending weather, the performance class and evening concert by the Dakota Winds Quintet has been postponed until a later date. The music department will advise as to the new date as soon as it is firm.

The Dakota Wind Quintet, a guest ensemble, will be performing at Dordt University on Friday, January 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium.

The ensemble consists of William Cedeño Torres, flute, Jeffrey Paul, oboe, John Tomkins, bassoon, Christopher Hill, clarinet, and Daniel Kitchens, playing horn.

Since its formation in 1982 the Dakota Wind Quintet has been well received throughout the state of South Dakota and the Midwest, giving concerts and lecture demonstrations, as well as live performances on MPR and SDPB Radio. The majority of the Dakota Wind Quintet’s time as a chamber ensemble is spent in the community performing at concert halls, colleges, community centers and public schools. They also serve as principal woodwind players of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, enriching and enhancing the quality of orchestra music in this region.
