A Lancaster-based ensemble, Manor Winds is comprised of five musicians who come together to rehearse in an historic farmhouse on Manor Street in Lancaster, PA. Since their formation in the spring of 2016, they have given over 40 performances throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. At home in both traditional and non-traditional settings, Manor Winds strives for professional performances of both standard and modern wind quintet repertoire. Built upon friendships developed in the freelancing community, Matthew Angelo (flute), Lauren Fairfull, (oboe), Christy Banks (clarinet), Anne Nye (horn), and Robin Plant (bassoon) believe that quality chamber music should be readily available to the region’s diverse population and enjoy sharing their love of music and collaboration with their audiences. For more information on the group and individual performers, please visit their website at www.manorwinds.com.

They have found the thrill of exploring the quartet repertoire on period instruments to be irresistible, providing an equally irresistible listening experience for the audience.
