Fresno State President's Quintet

  This week on FM89's Young Artists Spotlight we hear the President's Quintet of California State University Fresno. This scholarship woodwind ensemble is funded through the office of the university's President Joseph Castro and performs at many official campus events. The student members also receive additional support from the Fresno State Associated Students Inc. for tours, supplies and commissions. The group was founded in 1978, and is directed by Fresno State flute professor Dr. Teresa Beaman. In previous years, the ensemble has toured Europe, Asia and California. The 2013/2014 edition of the ensemble features:

Courtnee Browning, flute
Tate Shoebridge, oboe
Diego Zarate, clarinet
Bradley Rutledge, horn
Filip Kern, bassoon
