Melville Wind Quintet

The Melville Wind Quintet is made up of Pauline Vallance (flute), Judith Clark (oboe), Hugh Levey (clarinet), Andy Hunter (bassoon) and Helen Crossan (French Horn).

They have been playing together in various line-ups for about 25 years! The combination of instruments makes for a lively, varied sound. They also like to vary the repertoire from serious classical pieces, such as the Nielsen Wind Quintet, through arrangements of orchestral pieces and opera arias, to Scott Joplin rags and light-hearted pieces (they have been known to perform the Pink Panther!).

They will enjoy entertaining you.
