Airan Wright biography
At Writers Theatre: Mementos Mori
Airan Wright is an accomplished woodwind doubler and visual artist based in Evanston. He studied music at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, receiving performance degrees in both bassoon and saxophone, before moving to the Midwest. He performs and records regularly with an eclectic range of groups including Mucca Pazza, Big Shoulders Brass Band, Origin of Animal, and the improv variety show Mr. and Mrs. Wednesday Night. His woodwind quintet Ravenswood Winds prominently displays his cross-genre approach to composition and performance in their show "Ravenswood Winds Play Radiohead" by fusing classical sensibilities with modern rock techniques. Outside of musician life, Airan is an illustrator, photographer, and sushi chef -- his sushi is edible, not beautiful. Airan and his wife Kelly have wonderful teenage twins named Evelyn and Sophia who keep them constantly on their toes!
