the epicenter for artists and leaders in diversity
Third annual epicenter for artists and leaders in diversity, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2019 in Detroit, MI.
The convening will celebrate and empower leadership as we welcome hundreds of musicians, industry leaders, educators, funders, diversity advocates, and administrators for this transformative experience! Register now for this event: it will feature over 30 sessions designed to inspire and ignite action, participation of more than 60 speakers, a curated showcase featuring some of the nation’s top musicians, keynote addresses by luminaries and trailblazers, a special session for entrepreneurs, professional development and job placement opportunities, and much more.
Using chamber music as a point of entry, ensembles are increasingly becoming presenters’ partners in inviting and welcoming new audiences to their venues. Director 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.
Join QL Director Armando Castellano for a day of hands-on workshops, presentations, and discussions. Discover how an understanding of students’ cultural frameworks can inspire deeper learning and move schools toward greater equity, and how the arts can drive this approach.
• Artist/Educator collaborations that expand curriculum and support students’ cultural strengths
• Creating, implementing, and evaluating community-driven curriculum • Aligning culturally responsive arts teaching with Common Core and CA state standards…And much more!

The mission of the Bay Section of the California Association for Music Education is
- to promote the advancement of music education;
- to cultivate social and educational interaction among its members;
- to assist its members in seeking individual and collective growth as musicians, educators, and conductors.
Quinteto Latino Director Armando Castellano will be conducting a session called “Cultural equity and social justice through chamber music.”
We will share tools about creating and honoring diverse communities in our classrooms. Participants will be given the opportunity to develop their awareness
on DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) in their music teaching.
