The Paradise Winds, a Phoenix, AZ-based chamber wind ensemble with flexible instrumentation, met while pursuing advanced degrees in music at Arizona State University and have been performing together since 2005.  Paradise Winds have appeared to over a million weekly listeners on American Public Media’s Performance Today in 2011 and 2013.  In recent past, the Paradise Winds were featured in the Phoenix-based award-winning Downtown Chamber Series, were collaborators with the Grammy-winning Phoenix Chorale and have appeared with the grassroots organization, Classical Revolution PHX, Ann Arbor and Cincinnati.

Individual members of the Paradise Winds have appeared with Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New World Symphony (Miami, USA), AIMS Festival Orchestra (Graz, Austria), Wintergreen Summer Music Festival Orchestra (Virginia, USA), and in Phoenix with The Phoenix Symphony, Arizona Opera and Arizona Ballet. The Paradise Winds have also appeared locally for the Phoenix Catholic Diocese presenting children’s concerts in Peoria, Glendale, Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and Goodyear, AZ.

The Paradise Winds are active conference performers, playing consecutive annual conferences for the International Double Reed Society from 2011 through 2013 and in 2014 for the International Clarinet Association.  In the U.S., the Paradise Winds have performed at North American Saxophone Alliance conferences in 2011 and 2012.

Active teachers, members of the Paradise Winds hold positions at Arizona State University, Eastern Michigan University and in the Maricopa County Community Colleges (Phoenix-area), and have served in positions and given residencies abroad in Belgium, Italy, Germany and Ecuador.
