The Breaking Winds is an Eastman alumni success story — and a very unusual one, since they are a bassoon quartet. Brittany Harrington (BM ’10), Yuki Katayama (BM ’11), Kara La Moure (BM ’10), and Lauren Yu (BM ’11) are building a name for themselves in the music business, including YouTube videos (see the latest one here) and a CD, Breaking In, funded by a Kickstarter campaign. Breaking Winds is back at Eastman this week, rehearsing and performing with the Eastman Wind Ensemble under Mark Davis Scatterday. They’ll perform Scott Switzer’s concerto for four bassoons, Breaking Out, in a free concert tomorrow night, February 19 in Kodak Hall at 8 p.m.
