One of the most active and visible quintets in the Midwest, the Moran Quintet is the resident faculty woodwind quintet of the School of Music. Formed in 1986 and named for the late director of the School of Music, John Moran, the quintet has toured extensively throughout the Midwest, performing as a featured ensemble at the annual national convention of the College Music Society in Chicago and in 1992 performing in recital in South Korea.
The quintet was nominated for National Public Radio's Lucian Wulsin
Award for Best Regional Performance, Small Ensemble and was so popular
that it was played nationally in three separate broadcasts. The quintet
has recorded two CD's on Crystal Records. The 1998 release "Postcards
from the Center," showcases American woodwind quintet literature.
Featured on this CD are composers Heiden, Higdon, Murdock and Lieuwen. In
1994, the quintet's CD of works by the German late Romantic composer
Theodor Blumer was released. The quintet has also recorded on the Coronet
