During the past week, five Santa Fe music students participated as apprentice composers in intensive workshops, culminating in the premier of five new classical compositions. The young students were coached by nationally known Chickasaw composer-in-residence Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, as part of his IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts Social Engagement Art Residency. Students compositions will be performed by The UP Quartet (a professional string quartet comprised of musicians from the Santa Fe Symphony and Serenata of Santa Fe) at the El Camino Real Academy on Monday, October 30th at 11:45am. This event is free and open to the public.

About the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts Residency:
The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) is proud to announce that The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has funded $50,000 to MoCNA for its 2017-2018 Social Engagement Art Residency. MoCNA is breaking new ground in the Native American art field in developing this practice and understanding its potential within Indian Country. Through this residency and its many other programs, the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts is acknowledged as a leader and an innovator in cutting-edge art practice. For the past three years, MoCNA’s Social Engagement Art Residency was funded by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) through the Artist Leadership Program for Museums and Cultural Institutions. This partnership offered the flexibility to mold a program based on Native artist leadership that met the objectives of the Smithsonian while supporting MoCNA’s goals in terms of activating contemporary Native artist leadership, capacity and community building and the Native American Fine Art Movement. The first round of residents will meet in Santa Fe from October 22 – November 1.
