Deep Tones performs music from the woodwind duo, trio, quartet and quintet music repertoire ranging from traditional favorites to lesser known quintet music to newly commissioned work from underrepresented composers. Its musicians are outstanding young performers inspired by their shared commitment to connecting with a diverse group of listeners, creating opportunities for underrepresented composers and their love of chamber music.
