WindStreams: The Australian Wind Music Portal
Arcadia Winds aims to change the way people watch, listen to, and purchase Australian wind music.
Inspired by the idea of Australian wind music being easily accessible for all, Arcadia Winds is developing a groundbreaking new resource to make that happen.
We are excited to announce that the first stage of this project is now up an running, with lots of performance videos and composer interviews uploaded to a brand new website. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
2021 Arcadia Winds Composition Prize
Entries for this year's composition prize are now open!
In 2021, we will be commissioning a brand new 6-10 minute work for wind quintet from a young Australian composer aged 18-35, for an increased prize of $3,000!
Arcadia Winds are delighted to partner with ABC Classics for the release of our debut self-titled EP.
The EP traces our journey as an ensemble thus far, bringing light to the music we love and the values we uphold. The title Arcadia Winds is as much a manifesto as it is our name. It's a celebration of the fun and energy that inspires our collective music making, our passionate advocacy for new Australian music, and our role as ambassadors for wind music.
