About Us

The North Coast Winds is a prolific chamber ensemble which resides in Cleveland, Ohio. NCWs 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 NCWs focus,
and the quintet strives to relieve
educational barriers, socio-
economic barriers, and health
barriers from premiere music
education and performance.
