Introduction

We are delighted to present the ninght annual Tbilisi Wind Festival.

This festival was the first instrumental wind festival to be hosted in Georgia. Our aim is to encourage interest in wind instruments and chamber music in the region, and to improve the Georgian school of wind playing. It is a fundamental part of any orchestra.

Each year we are honored to host fantastic international and Georgian instrumentalists for concerts and master classes. The festival has become an integral part of the rich Georgian cultural scene; concerts and master classes present well loved repertoire and vibrant new works to large audiences.

I would like to thank the sponsors and supporters of the festival for helping us and for understanding the importance of this project.

I hope that young Georgian players will benefit from this opportunity and that it aids them in their development as professional musicians.
