WindSync welcomes acclaimed pianist Andrew Staupe to his new home of Houston in a close-up program of music for wind instruments and piano.
Andrew Staupe is a distinctive voice in a new generation of pianists. He has appeared as a soloist with the Baltimore Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Colorado Symphony, and he has collaborated as a chamber musician with Bobby McFerrin, the Assad Brothers, Chee-Yun, Sharon Robinson, and Martin Chalifour. He has recently appeared at the Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, and Steinway Hall. This year, he returns to Houston to make his home as a faculty member at the University of Houston Moores School of Music.
WindSync is one of the country's premiere wind quintets with performers on the flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon. They are regular winners of international chamber music prizes and in demand as touring artists and educators at concert series, universities, and community programs across North America. WindSync is proud to call Houston home, presenting a recital series at MATCH each season as well as the Onstage Offstage Chamber Music Festival and family concerts at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Their activities in Houston focus on expanding the creative boundaries of the wind quintet, connecting people across different backgrounds and fields, and providing children and families with enriching, interactive live concert experiences.
