ST. PAUL, Minn. — Simple and unadorned, David Maslanka's Quintet for Wind No. 3 is a mirror of the natural world.

This week's Regional Spotlight features a lovely performance of this piece by The Prairie Winds, originally performed at the Madeline Island Music Camp this past July.

Listen for the flocks of wrens and sparrows that the microphone picks up in the last quiet section of the piece. Beautiful indeed!
