September 2016

East End having way too much fun at the University of Alabama. We had a wonderful time working with Jon Noffsinger's students. A performance of Bolcom's Concerto Grosso with Dr. O and the UA Wind Ensemble was the perfect way to close our residency. Roll tide!

“In Takashi Yoshimatsu’s Dream Colored Mobile, 
[Wintringham's] saxophone sounds more like a bassoon
that’s been granted the power to reach notes that lie far above
the bassoon’s range. Wintringham’s melodious, poetic solo rose from a subdued, dreamy background created by harp and
string quartet.”
