City Creek Winds is the resident faculty woodwind quintet of Idaho State University. Founded in August 2010 by Molly York, Susan Hughes, Shandra Helman, George Adams, and Michael Helman, we have enjoyed several featured recitals, including McCall's Second Sunday Sounds concert series. As education and outreach are constant missions of CCW, we have also given presentations to ISU's NAfME chapter and a five-day performance tour of the Boise metro area.

Our recital programs are both innovative and engaging for all audiences, with repertoire ranging from transcriptions of ancient Hungarian dances through very accessible 20th- and 21st-century works.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Shandra Helman ( for further information regarding upcoming performances and/or availability for outreach and educational visits.
