Artists-in-Residence: Pacific Arts Woodwind Quintet
Established in 1970, the Pacific Arts Woodwind Quintet offers a wide range of programs to satisfy diverse audiences including school groups, community concert organizations, professional musician associations, and teacher conventions. For formal occasions, the Quintet performs a full-length program of standard wind quintet repertoire. For informal settings, selections representing numerous composers and styles are interspersed with discussions on performance problems (and solutions). Approximately 30-45 minutes in length, this format is ideal in a school setting and may be followed by group clinics on like-instruments. PAWQ members include Conservatory professors Mathew Krejci, flute, Thomas Nugent, oboe, Patricia Shands, clarinet, Nicolasa Kuster, bassoon, and Jennie Blomster, horn.
