Prismatic Winds

Prismatic Winds are one of Scotland’s most exciting emerging ensembles. At one point or another, the group have all studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where they were first formed in 2013. Within the first year of performing together, the group was highly commended at the Conservatoire’s prestigious Governor’s Chamber Music Prize.

In 2016 the group were appointed as associate tutors for the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland’s Wind Training Ensemble, which led to performances at the NYOS office launch party and to his Lord High Commissioner at Holyrood Palace. Keen on outreach work, the quintet has performed for the students of NYWES and has worked as associate tutors on NYOS Wind Ensemble Training Courses. In 2015 Prismatic Winds was invited to Stornoway to work with NYOS on a week-long project with local school pupils which was a resounding success.

Prismatic Winds joined Live Music Now in January 2018, and being on the scheme has enabled them to perform in a variety of venues and to a varied audience. This includes (but is not limited to) a recital at the Usher Hall, a baby-friendly concert working with Aberdeen’s new music hall, the Scottish National Gallery and a dementia-friendly concert at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre. The Scottish National Gallery commented that the quintet brought “the biggest audience [they’ve] ever had”.
