Northern Reeds is the UK’s first established reed quintet. They are the winners of the RNCM Fewkes Chamber Prize 2022, the June Emerson Wind Music Launchpad Prize 2022, and recently became the first UK group to be admitted into Calefax’s International Reed Quintet Network.
The group have performed in venues all over the North-West including Hallé St Peters, Ambleside Parish Centre and Emmanuel Church in Didsbury. In 2020, the group worked alongside Calefax judging their Calefax Composers Competition. In addition, they have commissioned new works for reed quintet by RNCM composers and in 2021 they premiered works by Kev Wong, Dominic Wills and Ruiyao Li.
