​On concert hall stages from Boston to Seattle, the  members of  The Northeast Quintet are accomplished symphonic and solo performers as well as experienced chamber musicians.

The Quintet is  well known for  audience-friendly  programming which demonstrates rich musical depth and an original creative   approach.

They regularly perform themed programs  such as "Music Around The World" ,"Dances With Winds" and "Peter and the Wolf" for school children, and have produced teacher's workshops on the theme of "Identity In Music"  and a historical recital  program titled "100 Years of American Chamber Music" which was performed in Boston and New Bedford, MA  and  in Kingston, RI.

In 2000 they represented the State of Rhode Island as recipients of an NEA  Continental Harmony Commissioning grant  which facilitated the creation and performance of a ground-breaking original work for Gospel Choir and Wind Quintet titled "Testimonials" by Stephen Michael Newby. As devoted educators, the quintet also served as faculty for the Northeast Quintet Camp, a training workshop for young musicians at Salve Regina University in Newport.
