Arcadia Winds aims to change the way people watch, listen to and purchase Australian wind music.

We will do this by documenting, recording and collecting new and existing works, then distributing them through our new Australian Wind Music Portal. This portal will offer easy access to audio/visual recordings of works as well as composers and performers talking at length about their music, and the ability to instantly download scores and parts.

It is our belief not only that Australian wind music is inherently valuable, but that there is also a real hunger for it among audiences and performers. This belief is supported by the fact that we are constantly asked by people in Australia and overseas where to go to listen to or purchase this music.

We’d like to finally be able to give a clear and simple answer to this question, to give much deserved exposure to the music we love and to enable people to enrich their lives with it. It’s our dream to allow performers, composers, students, audiences, presenters, and broadcasters world-wide to access Australian wind music with the simple click of a button.

With ongoing support from Musica Viva’s FutureMakers program, we have developed a comprehensive strategy to realise this project. It involves research and development in tandem with industry experts in Australia and overseas. Working with web developers at Actual Size, we hope to put together digital infrastructure that will help pioneer the distribution of classical music the world over. We will also seek feedback from composers, performers and audiences, as well as record a suite of works commissioned by the Arcadia Winds over the past two years.

Arcadia Winds is fortunate enough to have been selected to receive one of Creative Partnerships Australia’s 2017 MATCH Lab Grants. If we make it to our target of $10,000, CPA will match this amount dollar for dollar! So your donation will be worth twice as much!

The Arcadia Winds are one of Australia’s most exciting young chamber ensembles.

Formed in 2013 at the Australian National Academy of Music, they are fast becoming a fixture in the Australian musical scene, known for their energetic, joyful and spontaneous performances, advocacy for wind instruments, commitment to Australian music, and making music accessible to all.

Concerts at venues around the country, festival performances with the world’s best musicians, collaborations with Australian composers young and old, jamming with pop musicians and circus performers, and education programs for schoolchildren and university students are just some of Arcadia’s activities.
