The Arundos Quintett is a wind quintet based in North Rhine-Westphalia that delights its audiences again and again with new classic music programmes.

Founded during their studies at the Musikhochschule Köln, they have been a firmly established wind quintet since 2013 and convince with their joy of playing, rousing freshness and perfectly coordinated playing.
