Artist Music Series



The Wingra Woodwind Quintet, an ensemble-in-residence at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music, formed in 1965 and has established a tradition of artistic and teaching excellence.

Quintet members include Stephanie Jutt (flute), Kostas Tiliakos (oboe), Linda Bartley (clarinet), Marc Vallon (bassoon) and Linda Kimball (horn).

Jutt, a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, has performed in recital throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. She has served as a board member and program chair for the National Flute Association, and her all-Brahms recording, “Stolen Moments,” with pianist Jeffrey Sykes, was released in 2005.

Tiliakos, a native of Greece, has been principal oboist for the Greek National Opera Orchestra in Athens since 1997. An avid lover of contemporary music, he has been a member of the Hellenic Ensemble for Contemporary Music since 1990 and has premiered and recorded works by contemporary composers. Tiliakos also has appeared as a soloist around the world.

Bartley is the principal clarinetist for the Madison Symphony Orchestra, in addition to serving since 1988 as clarinetist for the Grand Teton Music Festival in Jackson, Wyo. Recital tours have taken Bartley throughout the United States, Canada, Japan and Switzerland. Her performances have been heard on PBS, NPR and CBC radio broadcasts.

Vallon, a native of France, did his musical studies at the Paris Conservatoire. He was a founding member of the Nielsen Quintet in 1975, with which he played hundreds of concerts until its last concert in 2002. Vallon has taught modern and baroque bassoon at the highest level in the Paris Conservatoire and in the Lyon Conservatoire.

Kimball, a native of Appleton and graduate of Lawrence University, is principal horn for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. She has performed orchestral and chamber music in various European countries.
