The Naval Academy Band’s Wind Trio performs repertoire from Baroque and Classical standards, French Impressionism, modern American songs, and works written by contemporary and local composers. Founded in 2016, the primary duty of the ensemble is to perform for social functions hosted by the United States Naval Academy Superintendent at the historic Buchanan House. The group's members also enjoy performing recitals for the community, as well as providing music at events for the Brigade of Midshipmen. In 2017, the group was invited to perform at the prestigious Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, IL, and was the first Reed Trio ever invited to perform in this capacity. The Wind Trio prides itself on versatile repertoire and world-class musicianship. The members of the trio are Musician 1st Class Emily Madsen on oboe, Musician 1st Class Micahla Hendrix on bassoon, and the group’s leader, Chief Musician Sheila Cullen on clarinet.
