A kaleidoscopic tapestry of vocal hues …”

— New York Times

Since 1969, the internationally acclaimed vocal sextet The Western Wind has devoted itself to the special beauty and variety of a cappella music. The Ensemble’s repertoire reveals its diverse background – from Renaissance motets to Fifties rock ’n’ roll, from medieval carols to Duke Ellington, from complex works by avant-garde composers to the simplest folk melodies.

“… versatility … virtuosity … a stunning concert.”

— Los Angeles Times
