Wind Chamber

What is Wind Chamber? It’s a new concert series at Crescent Fort Rouge United, co-directed by Michael Cutler and Charmaine Bacon. Repertoire features newly written and arranged works, as well as some classics, for all types of chamber ensembles, from flute choir, to clarinet choir, to woodwind quintet, to pipe organ.

Michael Cutler: Organist and Music Director at Crescent Fort Rouge United, as well as composer and arranger.
