Catharsis Winds was founded in 2016 at The Cleveland Institute of Music. Coached by Jonathan Sherwin, Contra-bassoonist of The Cleveland Orchestra, Franklin Cohen, and various other TCO members, Catharsis Winds is looking ahead after a breakthrough 2018-2019 season which led to nearly a dozen recitals, a residency at Interlochen Arts Academy, 4 major chamber music competitions, gala events, and private house concerts.  Having completed their first international tour in July 2019, Catharsis is busy planning for their upcoming year which will include recitals and residencies across the United States, a tour of Portugal in the summer of 2020, and another tour of Italy!  Catharsis Winds is also proud to announce a partnership with Fresh Perspectives Creative as their Emerging Ensemble-in-Residence, a program designed to bring us into the community and promote excellence in the arts in Northeastern Ohio.
