Arcadia Winds are trailblazers for Australian wind music. Awarded a fellowship at the Australian National Academy of Music upon their formation in 2013, they became Musica Viva Australia's inaugural FutureMakers musicians from 2015 to 2017.
They have collaborated with internationally renowned performers such as the Australian String Quartet, piano virtuosi Lambert Orkis, Paavali Jumppanen and Anna Goldsworthy, and woodwind masters Ole Kristian Dahl and Thorsten Johanns. Arcadia Winds celebrate and promote Australian music through commissions and performances of works by composers Elliott Gyger, Natalie Williams, Lachlan Skipworth and many others. They have taken their brand of energetic and spontaneous performance to festival stages all over Australia, concert halls across mainland China, and reached listeners around the world through the BBC Proms broadcasts of Australian chamber music.
