The Point Roberts Winds began its adventures in August 2006 when the US-Canadian ensemble was formed out of necessity – to recreate an evening of music in a garden setting. Since then, they have performed for everything imaginable on both sides of the border!
Robin Black (clarinet) has appeared as a chamber musician at the Performing Arts BC Festival, and also as an orchestral player in numerous ensembles, including the KPU Wind Symphony’s recent performance of Phillip Sparke’s Clarinet Concerto. Robin’s performance repertory includes a wide selection of works, ranging from the Classical masterpieces of Mozart, to the open-score music of Canadian composer Jordan Nobles.
Nina Black (flute) is the mother of Robin Black! Nina joined the PRWinds in 2013.
Janet Drew (flute) when not attending rehearsals with the PRWinds, Janet can be found playing her alto ego as a trombonist with her husband and best friend, Jay in three other community bands. Getting back to music has been absolutely the best. “What a great way to spend your retirement years.”
Claire Desautels LeBlanc (flute) is an avid gardener who, in her spare times plays with the PRWinds, two additional community bands and sings alto with the Trinity Community Choir.
Paul Ferry (flute) took up playing flute after arriving in Point Roberts a few decades ago. He has played flute with the Delta Music Makers for many years & with the Point Roberts Winds since its founding. Paul is a retired metallurgical engineer.
Connor Hettinga (piano, trumpet) studies trumpet & piano and dabbles in composing. Recently the Washington Technology Student Association awarded him with 2nd place in the Computer Aided 3D, Engineering competition and he is now invited to attend Nationals. Pretty snazzy!
Pat Hull (flute) began playing flute in high school and continued with community orchestras and concert bands in southern Ontario including the Univ. of Toronto Concert Band and the award-winning Brampton Concert Band. Pat is currently with the Royal City Concert Band and Brass, Wind & Wire.
Esther Rosenthal (French horn, piano, composer, arranger) at age 3, began playing by ear so lessons followed - piano age 7, violin age 10, French horn age 14. She has degrees in horn & music theory from the Oberlin Conservatory and the Eastman School of Music. Her duet arrangements of 18th century music were published by G. Schirmer in New York in 1967. Locally, she has played with the Whatcom Symphony & A Little Night Music Orchestra. She keeps busy arranging music for the PRWinds and doing volunteer work - Secretary of the Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness and Secretary-Treasurer of the Pt Roberts Food Bank.

Dick Williams (clarinet) has played the clarinet “off and on” since about 1942. He was a US Navy musician (and pro) in the early 1950’s. He has performed with groups in OK, TX, CA, TN, D.C. and is currently with A Little Night Music, & the Royal City Concert Band. In his own words, “Dick Williams began clarinet studies at a tender age and has never recovered.” He is a retired university professor.
