Welcome to our new President, Dr. Amy Cherry!
Dr. Amy Cherry
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
IWBC Pioneer Melba Liston was featured on the poster for the first IWBC in St. Louis in 1993. In an effort to fulfill the promise of her image and her inspiration, the IWBC continues to develop the leadership and participation of all brass players in the IWBC. An Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee has been formed with current initiatives that include the sponsorship of the Chromatic Brass Collective, a mentorship program, video series Flexibilities, and EDI training for the Board of Directors. The 2022 IWBC at the University of North Texas will feature sessions, panels, ensembles, and soloists that encourage and highlight diversity, equity, and inclusion. The competitions repertoire will include women and BIPOC composers in all rounds of all competitions. The IWBC is deeply committed to including all brass players in our organization.
