Woodwind Quintet


The Cumberland Winds is fortunate to host two woodwind quintets available for formal concerts, background music, and specialty events. The original Cumberland Wind Quintet consists mostly of principal players and expert guests that has begun annual recitals. This year’s lineup is Yvonne Kendall, flute (MM New England Conservatory); Janice Crews (DMA Louisiana State University), oboe; Bobbie Textor, clarinet; Emmanuel Mejeun (MM APSU), horn; Lauren Lupi (MM University of Louisville), bassoon.

The newer quintet, Cumberland Woodwinds, features current CW players:  Tamara Deichert, flute; Sarah Hermida, oboe; Bobbie Textor, clarinet; Michael Stewart, horn; and Wilson Sharpe, bassoon.
