The North Coast Winds is a prolific chamber ensemble which resides in
Cleveland, Ohio. NCW’s goal is to contribute directly to the community using
classical music as a tool for outreach, education, and cultural enrichment. As
modern musicians, The North Coast Winds seek to demonstrate the relevance of
classical music not only through mastering its performance but also by engaging
the community on a practical level. As a result, the group performs in formal
recital venues, local area schools, retirement communities, hospitals, libraries,
and other non-traditional performance venues.
Education and community involvement
are a critical part of NCW’s focus,
and the quintet strives to relieve
educational barriers, socio-
economic barriers, and health
barriers from premiere music
education and performance.
