The Fireside Quintet is a woodwind quintet based in Vancouver, Canada. The ensemble's mission is to explore and perform unconventional and exciting woodwind quintet music. Their performances have been delighting audiences for nearly 5 years in the Lower Mainland.

The Fireside Quintet enjoys playing many favorites of the wind quintet repertoire, but also isn't afraid to step outside the usual realm of possibilities and explore new or lesser known compositions. They have been known to play everything from Taffanel to Piazzolla to Ligeti, having something for every listener. Their variety in repertoire is mirrored in their daring approach to venues, having performed for audiences in recital halls, art galleries, and even parks. Just as the quintet is passionate about performance art, they are also dedicated to furthering the accessibility of instrumental music and bringing music education to the public. It’s not uncommon to see members of Fireside teaching private lessons, master classes, or playing a school concert. The Fireside Quintet is an ensemble for every generation, combining the sophistication of the concert goer with the approachability of the average person on the street, to create something fresh and modern for today’s listeners.
