Logan Canyon Winds:  Utah State University's Faculty Wind Quintet


Logan Canyon Winds was founded in 1991 as Utah State University's Faculty Woodwind Quintet, giving a debut performance in May of 1992.  Quintet members are:  Leslie Timmons, flute; Bonnie Schroeder, oboe; Nicholas Morrison, clarinet; Carolyn Bodily, bassoon; and Steven Park, horn.  Logan Canyon Winds has appeared on the Uintah Arts Council Concert Series, the Salt Lake City Brown Bag Concert Series, the Mississippi State University Lyceum Series and the Utah State University Faculty Recital Series. They have performed at the University of Montana, at Brigham Young University´┐ŻIdaho, on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, at the University of Central Florida, and at the 1998 and 2000 National Conferences of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association.  The ensemble has also presented sessions for MENC:  The National Association for Music Education and performed at the 2007 National Conference of Chamber Music America in New York City.

 Pioneering the creation of opportunities for students to perform with professional wind quintet, Logan Canyon Winds has commissioned several works for wind quintet and Orff Instrumentarium funded by Wilford and Marjorie Gardner.  The ensemble is uniquely equipped for work in outreach settings:  two members are conductors with university and public school experience; two others have extensive Orff Schulwerk training.  Logan Canyon Winds  is supported, in part, by a generous grant from the Marie Eccles Caine Foundation, by USU's Department of Music, and by the Caine School of the Arts in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Utah State University.  The ensemble has recently been designated the beneficiary of a generous planned gift from Wilford and Marjorie Gardner.  For information on performances and residencies, contact Nicholas Morrison, Nicholas.Morrison@usu.edu or 435.797.3506.
