formers bouncing along state roads results
in "steady contact," says clarinetist Glenn
Bowen of the University's Wingra Wood-
wind Quintet.
   The quintet has logged thousands of
miles on state highways since 1965, as it
takes a week to give concerts and instruc-
tional clinics. The first musical notes often
are heard at a mini concert at the high
school. Then students are split into sections
for instruction according to the instruments
they play.
   "We can help students become better
performers and listeners," Bowen explains.
"In smaller communities the conductor
can't be proficient at every instrument. So
we try to provide an example."
   The high school teacher benefits, too.
Often the quintet members are able to spot
a technique that is consistently overlooked
and explain its usage to the teacher.
   The Wingra quintet is part of a Univer-
sity Arts Outreach program which last year
provided some sixty musical events for an
estimated 10,000 state listeners.
   Other members are Robert Cole, flute;
Marc Fink, oboe; Richard Lottridge, bas-
soon, and Douglas Hill, horn. The group
also travels nationally. Last year it per-
formed at Carnegie Recital Hall in New
York and at the National Music Educator
Conference in Miami.
   UW-Madison choir, brass, opera, string
and woodwind groups are available to visit
grade and high schools, community cen-
ters, libraries, museums or other fine arts
centers interested in hosting outstanding
college-level performers or professional
musicians. The groups are being scheduled
for the 1981-83 seasons. For travel expenses
of $225, they will present a concert or a
clinic. Appearances by student groups cost
more because of greater transportation
costs. Sponsors may contact Ken Chraca
