The only wind quintet to win a gold medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in over ten years, the City of Tomorrow is a leading international ensemble dedicated to the performance and creation of new music for winds. A traveling quintet, COT has performed across the U.S. and Canada, making their New York debut in April 2013 at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music. Other appearances during the 2012-13 season included Old First Concerts in San Francisco, New Music Edmonton in Alberta, the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series in Chicago, and a collaboration with the Portland Cello Project on Radiohead's album OK Computer in Portland, Oregon.
In December of 2012, the City of Tomorrow collaborated with Henk Guittart and Gruppo Montebello at the Banff Centre in a project to perform and record works from the Second Viennese School and the Society for Private Musical Performances. This three CD set will be released in late 2013 and early 2014 by Etcetera/New Arts International label. Deeply committed to education, and to the development of wind chamber music in universities, the City of Tomorrow has been an ensemble in residence at Western Michigan University and Williams College in Massachusetts. They have also presented master classes at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and colleges throughout the midwest.
