Key City Winds is the premiere professional woodwind chamber ensemble in the Abilene, TX area. We offer a variety of repertoire and instrument combinations, and are available for events, weddings, parties, in-home concerts, formal concerts, etc.



The Key City Winds was formally established by Susetta Rockett (oboe), and Staci Spring (bassoon) in 2012. Based in Abilene, TX, the group provides high quality performances of woodwind chamber music in a variety of combinations and venues. The Key City Winds hosts an impressive roster of musicians that includes many University faculty and professionals.


Community engagement and education are key components of the group's mission. They incorporate regular educational concerts into their performance schedule as artists for the Young Audiences program, as well as providing side-by-side performance opportunities for college-level musicians.


Key City Winds is a sister organization to Key City Brass and Key City Percussion.
