Arizona Wind Quintet presents Homenage a México

classical, masterclasses
Lani Hall

The Arizona Wind Quintet (AWQ) will present a chamber music masterclass and perform selections from their program Homenaje a México, which pays tribute to the Mexico City Wind Quintet’s commitment to the creation of new works. The program will feature music by all Mexican composers, and AWQ will perform several pieces that are less well known in the United States, celebrating diverse compositional styles and influences. The group will coach student ensembles and discuss chamber music at the professional level.

The Arizona Wind Quintet (AWQ) is the faculty ensemble-in-residence at the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music in Tucson, Arizona. Formed in 1977, AWQ has cultivated a tradition of excellence in both performance and teaching. The quintet mentors the award-winning Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet, the university's premier student chamber ensemble. In spring 2018, AWQ held a residency at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Mexico City. Group members have given masterclasses at institutions across the country.

Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-2019 Dobrow Series.
