The Pavia Winds is a wind quintet comprised of Emily Sapa, flute, Sara Carmack, oboe, Ryan Golden, clarinet, Gina Monge, horn and Justin Windschitl, bassoon. They are best known for their focus on contemporary compositions and have presented concerts and workshops throughout Minnesota, with a goal to encourage enthusiasm for chamber music of all kinds at all ages.
