The only wind quintet to win a gold medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in over ten years, the City of Tomorrow "plays with an extraordinary sense of ensemble, not just in terms of rhythmic precision but in tone color, balance, gesture, and sensitivity" (Sidney Chen, NewMusicBox). The quintet was formed in 2010 and has since become known for their performances of virtuosic works.
COT have performed together across the U.S. and Canada, making their New York debut in April 2013 at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music. Other appearances during the 2012-13 season included Old First Concerts in San Francisco, New Music Edmonton in Alberta, the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Series in Chicago, and the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival.
