ST. PAUL, Minn. — On this week's Regional Spotlight, a sunny summer performance that is all smiles!

Practicing the art of polite conversation, the Prairie Winds had the audience in the palm of their hand with this performance of Anton Reicha's Wind Quintet, Op. 88, No. 2.

This concert was recorded at the Madeline Island Music Camp last month and is filled with bright wind color and joyful articulation — perfect for a summer day!
