Bridging Borders
Thank you!
El Festival de las Trompetas is the continuation of a wonderful
exchange program between our two schools and part of the School of
Music’s Bridging Borders project. This is a dynamic and far-reaching
initiative mixing music, education, scholarship, university profile,
creative performance, culture awareness and the outreach through an
international border. Bridging Borders mirrors a University of Arizona
initiative that includes significant cultural outreach and brings what the
UA does so well to a waiting public - the education of children. This
project prepares the UA to draw on some of our brightest graduate
students, enhance our faculty’s abilities to teach and perform within a
different cultural milieu, recruit other exemplary students, and allows
them to be of strong and immediate impact on the music educators and
music students of indigenous and tribal areas in rural Arizona, South
Tucson and Mexico. Fresh perspectives and new ways of thinking will
naturally arise.
Cónsul Ricardo Pineda & Karina Fimbres
Consulate of Mexico in Tucson
The universal language of music, translated through classes and
performances, touches not only those directly involved with this
initiative, but moves through the audiences and families of each
participant to create new conduits for communication and
understanding. Skill levels are enhanced and important regional
musical idiom is explored against the backdrop of accepted classical
standards. The opportunity exists for many to learn much, and perhaps,
more important than any of the literal shifts that will occur in musicianship
and academic pursuit, is the forging of friendships that dissolve bias
and erase what divides us.
Having the privilege of bringing our students over each other’s
border has been a dream Alex and Ed have been able to realize now
over the past five years. We thank all those who have helped us,
including the support from our schools and from the Consulate
of Mexico in Tucson.
