history of
the Linden WoodWind Quintet

The Linden Woodwind Quintet was founded in 1974 by five musicians who were then attending the Manhattan School of Music. The group was originally named the Caloroso Quintet. The members thought the name meant, "warm and passionate", but one time an audience member remarked that it really meant "hot and sweaty", so the group had to find another title. Someone came up with the idea of naming it after the linden tree and that is the name it has been ever since.
