Chamber Music as a Catalyst for Change

Friday, January 18

Palace Room, 9th Floor


Armando Castellano

Using chamber music as a point of entry, ensembles are increasingly becoming presenters’ partners in inviting and welcoming new audiences to their venues. Quinteto Latino, a wind quintet devoted to performing the music of Latinx composers, works with presenters and communities alike, building bridges as well as trust over a period of time. Armando Castellano will explain the multifaceted approaches he uses to do this work, its benefits to both presenters and communities, and the tools artists need to be successful.
