Event Program (PDF)

Since 2014, the Semana Internacional de Improvisación has gathered cutting-edge artists from both sides of the border, and beyond, in the Mexican city of Ensenada. This showcase will officially light the spark for next year's edition of the festival, to be held in March of 2020. Featured in this concert is trumpeter, composer, and bandleader Iván Trujillo, presenting the debut of his 8-piece Ensemble. Trujillo will be joined by Ensenada-based improvising visual artist Esther Gámez and by flutist and UC San Diego Faculty member Wilfrido Terrazas as special guests. The combo will present a spicy mix of original compositions and creative music classics, with a Baja California flavor. Furthermore, and in correspondence with the Semana's cross-border spirit, the Ensemble will also be joined by a handful of UC San Diego Grad students to create site-specific large ensemble improvisations at UC San Diego's Conrad Prebys Music Center.
