Ravenswood Winds (RWW) is a Chicago-based woodwind quintet dedicated to exploring the confluence of traditional classical composition and modern rock sensibilities. Keenly interested in how such disparate worlds can be brought together, RWW’s performances often feature the reedy, earthy idiosyncrasies found in the typical wind quintet instrumentation coupled with the unexpected tonal qualities and rhythm that are more prevalent coming from an electric guitar, bass, or drums.

Formed in 2015, RWW has performed at numerous locations around Chicago, including Evanston SPACE, the Lurie Garden at the Art Institute of Chicago, Art Makers Outpost, Fulton Street Collective, and in partnership with Classical Revolution Chicago. RWW frequently combines performance with education as they weave songs together to create a narrative for the listener. Concise and intricate pieces performed for the court versus rousing sea shanties for the common worker to illustrate the similarities and differences between class systems. Or “Ventis in Horto,” wind quintet music inspired by the work of Jean-Luc Mylayne.

In 2017 RWW shifted from the common literature written for wind quintet to focuson the concept of a show exploring the works of rock and indie artists like Alanis Morissette, Radiohead, and others. This departure from the typical quintet aesthetic explores the works of these individualsvia original arrangements, digital tape looping, and effects processing, asking the question “what does it mean to play 21st century literature with 18th century instrumentation?” Their fan favorite ongoing series entitled “Ravenswood Winds Play Radiohead” continuesto be showcased in the Chicagoland area.
