EMBLEMS is an artist collective of five musicians who just happen to also be a wind quintet. Together, we help promote the work of one another and of our respective communities in order to advance our mission in the classical music community: to advance performance of and research into composers and their work that have been overlooked and brushed aside in an effort to present the diverse music of our time.
