Watch master musicians from Imani Winds work directly with the students of Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet, exploring the music of Paquito D’Rivera on Jan. 20.

Presented by the Fred Fox School of Music and Arizona Arts’ Racial Justice Studio at the Center for Creative Photography Auditorium.

An open conversation about curating a meaningful artistic career in the 21st century and on how musicians can approach programming music outside the Western European canon will follow the master class. 

Imani Winds is nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award for “Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.” 

Imani Winds has a permanent presence in the classical music section of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. The group regularly plays iconic venues like Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and the Walt Disney Hall; and is committed to expanding the wind quintet repertoire by commissioning music from new voices who reflect historical events and the times in which we live.

Racial Justice Studio

Arizona Arts’s Racial Justice Studio seeks to amplify the work of Arizona Arts scholars, artists, and educators for whom anti-racism is a core tenet embedded in their professional and personal lives, while also partnering with stakeholders, advocates, and activists beyond the UA campus. 

Imani Winds 

Celebrating over two decades of music making, Imani Winds is known for pushing the boundaries of chamber performance and the wind quintet repertoire. Their intentional programming incorporates imaginative collaborations and commissions from new voices that reflect historical events and the times in which we currently live. Their projects center around commissions by living composers, celebrating phenomenal women, music written or inspired by migrants and immigrants from the Latin and African diaspora. Imani Winds offers diverse artist perspectives in an educational and interactive way. 

Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet

The Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet is one of the university’s premiere student chamber ensembles. Since the formation of the inaugural quintet in 2007, the cohorts of this ensemble have performed in China, Mexico and all throughout the southwest. The ensemble’s accolades include the MTNA, Coleman, and Plowman chamber music competitions. Its members have won solo competitions and several alumni hold positions in professional orchestras and ensembles. The current cohort includes first year master’s students.

This program is made possible by generous support from Arizona Arts, John and Sandi Flint, Fox Horn Studio and donors to the College of Fine Arts Fund for Excellence.

Per the University of Arizona face covering requirements, surgical masks (3-ply) or higher-grade (KN95, N95, KF94 and N99) masks must be worn on campus. Cloth masks alone will no longer meet the face covering requirement, although they may be worn over a surgical mask to enhance fit.
