The instrumentation of the ensemble is:

Lindsey Reymore: Oboe (doubling English Horn)
Ben Stonaker: Bb Clarinet (doubling Eb Clarinet and Alto Clarinet)
Toan Tran: Bassoon (doubling Contrabassoon)
Keri Wing: Eb Alto Saxophone (doubling Tenor and Bari Sax)
Rose Valby: Horn in F
Miguel Perez: Bb Trumpet

One main goal of this project was to encourage compositions that are creative and striking while being extremely concise. The other main goal is to expose more of the general public to the potential of contemporary classical art music in a way that is casual and that can be done with no time commitment.
