The Renaissance City Winds, named after Pittsburgh's nickname, has become one of Pennsylvania's foremost chamber music ensembles since its founding in 1975. The group tours throughout the East and Midwest and has released two CDs to date. It has appeared at Carnegie Hall NY, the Kennedy Center, Blossom Music Festival, and the Pennsylvania Governor's Residence. Founded just before the Bicentennial, the group's programs often feature music by American composers, both old and new. It presents two series in Pittsburgh, one in architectural landmarks and a "parlor" series in homes. The group plays music for 3-13 winds, and often collaborates with pianists, poets, guitarists, singers, string groups, and mime and dance troupes. The ensemble has captured nationally competitive awards from Chamber Music America, the National Endowment for the Arts, Meet-the-Composer, and the Aaron Copland Fund for Music.
