Created in 2007 as the Arizona Graduate Winds, the ensemble is now endowed and was re-named the Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet in recognition and appreciation of Fred Fox’s contributions as an extraordinary master teacher. Members of the quintet are chosen by competitive auditions and have received their undergraduate degrees from institutions across the country. They are mentored by members of the Arizona Wind Quintet, a faculty ensemble.
While in residence at the University of Arizona, members of the Fred Fox Graduate Wind Quintet pursue their careers as an ensemble and as individuals. The students are pursuing master’s degrees in their individual instruments at the University of Arizona and bring their rich and diverse backgrounds of educational and professional experiences to our program.
Past students in the program have achieved success in a variety of forums including numerous campus appearances, a concert tour in China, a recital in Alamos, Mexico, as part of the prestigious Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado Music Festival, as guest artists of the Bisbee Women’s Club at their For the Love of Music series, and at the Arizona Senior Academy. Further achievements include appearances in Pasadena as finalists in the Coleman Chamber Music Competition and in Atlanta as finalists in the Music Teachers National Association Collegiate Chamber Music Competition. In addition, the ensemble has been heard on Arizona Public Media radio broadcasts.
