Wild Basin Winds

Professors Ian Davidson and Daris Hale are both founding members of Wild Basin Winds, a celebrated woodwind quintet who have performed all over the world.  'Trio 488' and Wild Basin Winds have already joined forces once for a joint concert at Hawaii International Conference in Arts and Humanities.  'Trio 488' looks forward to more joint ventures with Wild Basin Winds in the future.


The Wild Basin Winds quintet was founded in 1996 by five talented musicians who have performed together in orchestras around the globe for almost two decades. As accomplished performers, college professors and lively compatriots they are delighted to be offering polished and imaginative concerts and educational presentations to audiences everywhere.

Audiences worldwide have enjoyed the perfomances of the Wild Basin Winds, including the world premiere of Donald Grantham's Wild Basin Music in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2000 and their Kennedy Center debut in 2003. They have traveled extensively from coast to coast performing a variety of concerts and teaching masterclasses at various venues and universities. Beginning in 2004 the Wild Basin Winds will be joining the faculty at the Festival di Musica da Camera in Italy where they will teach and perform as woodwind quintet in residence.

The Wild Basin Winds are on the Texas Commission of the Arts and the MidAmerica Arts Alliance Touring Rosters and are available for formal concerts, education presentations and special events.
