The St. Andrew’s Bach Society will present pianist Paula Fan with the woodwind quintet Paloma Winds in concert this Sunday, July 24, starting at 3 p.m.

The concert will feature W. A. Mozart’s Piano Quintet in Eb Major, K. 452 and the lushly romantic Sextet for Piano and Winds by Ludwig Thuille. 

Fan, a favorite of Tucson audiences, has performed as a soloist and chamber musician on five continents, recorded 17 albums, and serves on the faculty at the University of Arizona School of Music.

She regularly collaborates with world-class soloists, such as violinist Steven Moeckel and Tucson Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Aaron Boyd. 

The Paloma Winds features Deena Reedy on flute, Sara Fraker on oboe, Andrew Braden on clarinet, Rebecca Cain on bassoon, and Victor Valenzuela on horn.  All members are active in the Tucson community as orchestral performers, chamber musicians and teachers.

The Paloma Winds have been the quintet-in-residence at the Music from Greer summer festival since 2006. They recently performed at the 2010 International Double Reed Society Conference.

This concert will be held at Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2331 E. Adams.
