On Saturday, February 1 at 2 p.m., Greenwich Library’s Ashforth Children’s Concert Series will present wind quintet Windsync. The concert is part of the Curiosity Concerts Series for children and will be held in the Cole Auditorium. The program will cover pieces from Beethoven and Copland as well as Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.

Hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is a fresh and energetic ensemble based in Houston, Texas. The group has presented concerts across North America. Their mission to inspire audiences through innovative, interactive chamber music concerts and educational programs drives their highly creative approach. The group is a pioneer in unconventional performance practices including the addition of costumes and choreography as well as new projects dedicated to teaching tolerance through music education in schools. This year WindSync was named a winner in the 2012 Victor Elmaleh Concert Artists Guild Competition and was awarded the Sylvia Ann Hewlett Adventurous Artist Prize.

Advance registration is suggested.

The Ashforth Concert Series is designed to introduce children to classical music performance. The concert is open to the public at no charge through the support of Georgie and Henry A. Ashforth. Curiosity Concerts is a new series of classical music concerts for families with children ages 5-8 and their interested siblings of any age. The series is a coalition effort spearheaded by the Greenwich Arts Council.
