ALP in the Spotlight
Brittany Harrington-Smith is an active performer, life and professional coach, and a fitness consultant. She received her Performer’s Diploma and Master of Music degree in Bassoon Performance at Southern Methodist University Meadows School of the Arts, her Bachelor of Music degree with high honors at the Eastman School of Music, and was a member of the Catherine Filene Shouse Chapter of the Arts Leadership Program. She is also a graduate of Professional Coaching from the International Coaching Federation accredited school – InviteChange.
Brittany is also a founding member of The Breaking Winds Bassoon Quartet; an innovative chamber ensemble that pushes the limits of creativity and entertainment in instrumental music. Their repertoire disregards genre, with favorites from the worlds of classical, pop, jazz, soundtrack, and folk music adapted for the ensemble by its members. Known for their stage antics, the BWBQ use choreography, accessory instruments, props, and skits to add theatrical elements to their performances. The ensemble’s mission is threefold: to navigate the intersection of classical music, pop culture, and comedy, to expand the scope of bassoon performance, and to create meaningful bonds with audiences.
Brittany keeps an active schedule as a coach in both the professional and fitness realms, a consultant, and member of the BWBQ.
