The Navy Band Harbor Winds clarinet quartet has been featured in several Navy Band chamber concerts at local museums, churches, and concert halls. In addition, the quartet performs as part of the Navy Band's Music in the Schools program. The flexibility of this ensemble allows their repertoire to encompass standard works written for clarinet quartet, as well as a wide range of works from Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik to the jazz influences of Gershwin melodies.
