Dolce Wind Quintet is a professional ensemble with abundant talent and experience entertaining and educating audiences of all ages. Since 1995 Dolce Wind Quintet has been performing for recitals, weddings, receptions, worship services, schools, charity benefits, and other events, including pub nights!
Dolce customizes each performance playlist to delight audiences, drawing from an enormous repertoire of classic and contemporary woodwind quintet literature, transcriptions, popular songs and dances, ethnic music, show tunes, holiday favorites, and more.
To engage their listeners, Dolce musicians deliver program notes from the stage, talking about composers’ backgrounds, the cultural context of the pieces, and musical elements for which the audience can listen.
The musicians are flutist Nancy Wucherpfennig, oboist Megan Dvorak, clarinetist Karen Hansen, bassoonist Ford Campbell, and hornist Vicki Wheeler. All teach and perform in the Twin Cities area and hold positions with other chamber ensembles and several orchestras – from Bloomington and Rochester to Mankato and Duluth.
