Wesley Reist Wind Quintet forms through GKSOM class, blends, stays together

Performing music together in a quintet can be a powerful experience for its members and that can also translate to sending a powerful message to the listener.

The Wesley Reist Wind Quintet was formed a couple of years ago when several members of the quintet needed to enroll in the chamber music class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music. The quintet now includes De Davis, flute; Alyssa Pracht, oboe; Shiana Montanari, clarinet; Jordan Redd, horn and Brock Nutter, bassoon.
