The group is composed of Valerie Coleman on flute, Toyin Spellman-Diaz on oboe, Mariam Adam on clarinet, Jeff Scott on French horn and Monica Ellis on bassoon. The group has toured throughout the United States, Canada and Europe and regularly collaborates with other artists including Paquito D'Rivera and Wayne Shorter.
