The Westland Wind Quintet was formed in 2012 as a student ensemble of the Royal Irish Academy of Music, where they were coached by Brian O’Rourke and William Dowdall on a weekly basis for almost 3 years. In 2014 they were prizewinners in the ESB Feis Ceoil Chamber Music Cup as well as participating in the young ensemble residency at the KBC Great Music in Irish Houses Festival, where they received masterclasses from Michael Collins and Cormac O hAodáin. In addition to working in a wind quintet setting they often play in wind sections of orchestras together, performing in a wide range of styles – from early baroque to experimental contemporary music – with different ensembles across Ireland and abroad, and, above all, they really enjoy spending time together!
