Members of the Elicio Winds are committed to promoting chamber music, supporting diverse American composers, and providing engaging community outreach opportunities. The ensemble strives to create dynamic and interdisciplinary programming which engages the larger artistic community and audiences at large. The Elicio Winds recently performed at several national conferences, including the 2021 College Music Society Conference in Rochester, NY and the 2022 National Flute Association Conference in Chicago, IL. The ensemble received a 2020 grant through the Alabama State Council on the Arts to commission five new works which highlight cultural elements of the state and a SEC Travel Grant to visit the University of Arkansas, where they led activities aimed at promoting chamber music among college students and arts education throughout the region. Elicio Winds will record a CD of their commissioned works in May 2023.
