Back in Ridgefield after prior popular performances presented by the RSO, Harmonia V is an innovative woodwind quintet dedicated to performing the best standard literature, seldom heard treasures, and the most dynamic contemporary music available today.

Audiences of all ages will enjoy Harmonia V’s refreshing approach to virtuosity and nuance, exposing them to a new world of sound, color and emotion.
Collectively, Harmonia V boasts a musical resume including some of the most prestigious music schools in the nation, including The Curtis Institute, Eastman School of Music, Yale University, Hartt School of Music and Manhattan School of Music. In addition, members have performed or currently perform with most of the musical ensembles in CT including Ridgefield, New Haven, Hartford, Bridgeport and Waterbury Symphonies, Orchestra New England, and the United States Coast Guard Band, as well as the Vermont Symphony and Springfield (MA) Symphony.
