Cascadia Reed Quintet
The Cascadia Reed Quintet is a wind quintet comprised entirely of reed-based woodwinds, a new genre of chamber music that is less than 30 years old. Our members include Marea Chernoff (oboe/english horn), Christopher Lee (clarinet), Colin MacDonald (soprano/alto saxophones), Olivia Martin (bassoon), and AK Coope (bass clarinet). We are all active performers in the orchestral and chamber music community in the lower mainland and around the province, and are regular members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia of the North Shore, Naniamo Symphony, and Kamloops Symphony.
Our repertoire includes arrangements of Baroque to Modern composers, as well as original contemporary works for reeds.
