Amber Wyman

The quintet includes Emma McCartney, Flute; Chris Fujiwara, Oboe; Sean Holmes, Horn; Sergio Coelho, Clarinet, and Wyman, Bassoon. The Kinetic Winds, led by Wyman, have been doing outreach in the Los Angeles schools for the past couple of years as part of the USC Thornton School of Music Community Engagement program.

Thanks to a generous grant from Mono Arts Council, Wyman and clarinetist Coelho, who has performed in Mammoth with the symphony in the past, will be traveling to Mammoth to work with Mammoth Unified music teacher Michael Hammers and his woodwind students on October 27th and again on November 3rd and 4th prior to the November 4th concert. The participation of students in November’s concert will be an added bonus. The educational component and ability to connect with professional woodwind musicians and learn from them is a goal of the Eastern Sierra Symphony.

Thanks to the generous support from Mammoth Lakes Recreation-Measure U, Mono Arts Council, and our donors and sponsors, students will be admitted free of charge. Tickets purchase in advance online are $20 for Adults and $18 for Senior; tickets at the door are $22 – no discounts. Tickets may be purchased at
