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.

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.

the Madison Symphony Orchestra, in addition to serving since 1988 as
clarinetist for the Grand Teton Music Festival in Jackson, Wyo. Recital tours

Her performances have been heard on PBS, NPR and CBC radio broadcasts.

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

level in the Paris Conservatoire and in the Lyon Conservatoire.
