The Pennsylvania Quintet is comprised of Penn State faculty members Naomi Seidman (flute), Tim Hurtz (oboe), Anthony Costa (clarinet), Lisa O. Bontrager (horn), and Daryl Durran (bassoon). Now in its 29th season, this acclaimed wind chamber music ensemble has presented concerts at major venues on both sides of the Atlantic. These performances include concerts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Germany, and concerts in Nuremberg and Frankfurt. In addition to performances on many university guest artist series, the Quintet has been Ensemble-in-Residence at the Sedona Chamber Music Festival and a winner of the National Flute Association's international Chamber Music Ensemble competition. The Pennsylvania Quintet can be heard on these compact disc recordings: American Wind Music (Centaur 2085), 20th Century Wind Chamber Music (Centaur 2225), and Recent American Works for Winds (Centaur 2509). In addition, National Public Radio has featured the Quintet in its nationally-syndicated program, Performance Today.
