"It's better to err on the side of daring than on the side of caution." -Alvin Toffler

 

There are demands in music performance that create tension: for instance, the demand to play with impeccable technical precision, while simultaneously staying relaxed, fully expressive and unrestrained. In Throw Caution to the Wind, District5 put their inhibitions aside and tackled these tensions by performing some of the most colorful and virtuosic work for wind quintet, sharing what it's like, after countless hours of preparation, to simply let loose and perform.

Leonard Bernstein: Overture to Candide (trans. Don Stewart)

Paquito D'Rivera: Selections from Aires Tropicales

 Alborada -Son - Vals Venezolano
