The Festival Winds have for many years been a resident ensemble of the Festival of the Sound. The Festival of the Sound is one of Canada’s leading summer music festivals and is held annually in Parry Sound, Ontario.


We are a Harmoniemusik ensemble consisting of pairs of oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons with a double bass.  We regularly have guests join us to fill out the Winds as the instrumentation requires.  A woodwind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn) is also a core ensemble of the festival.


The harmoniemusik ensemble has recorded first editions of music attributed to Mozart.  These are the first recordings of these previously unpublished works.
