About Us

Formed from a demand for high quality small
ensemble music for special events, weddings
and private functions along with a common
interest in contributing to the music community,
Trinity Winds was founded. 

Since 2017 Trinity Winds has performed at:
The Calgary Zoo, The Lougheed House, The
University of Calgary Rozsa Centre for the
Calgary Wind Symphony, The Cathedral
Church for The ProArts Society, weddings,
funerals, Senior facilities, Bridal Fairs, outdoor
picnics and BBQs and has been featured at the
Knox Presbyterian Red Carpet Series. In July
2019 they were chosen as a Rozsa Artist
Collective and performed at numerous libraries
during the winter of 2019/2020 throughout the
City of Calgary.

Collaborating with the finest musicians in
Calgary, Trinity Winds incorporates the unique
sounds of the Flute, Clarinet, and Bassoon to
create some genuinely memorable musical
experiences. Premiere members of Canada’s
Arts Network, ArtsConnex, the trio has been
coached by past CPO principal bassoonist,
Stephen Franse.  With their expansive
repertoire ranging from old world classic
composers such as Mozart, Mendelssohn,
Wagner to complementary European dances,
contemporary and easy listening, there is
something for everyone.
