Fred Fox Wind Quintet
Natalie Groom was clarinetist of the Fred Fox Wind Quintet (2013–2015), the resident wind quintet at the University of Arizona.
As finalists in the MTNA National Chamber Music competition and semi-finalists in the Plowman Chamber Music competition, the group was an active performing and competing ensemble. The quintet also served as university ambassadors to China during a three-week tour across twelve cities. This ensemble was integral in the Fox family’s decision to bestow a $20 million endowment to the UA School of Music, and the quintet was featured in press releases and a TV interview centered on the gift. Ms. Groom filled the role of ensemble manager during that year.
