Since its formation 20 years ago, Imani Winds has led both the revolution and the evolution of the wind quintet through dynamic playing, adventurous programming, imaginative collaborations and outreach endeavors that have inspired audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
The Grammy-nominated ensemble is “devoutly committed to expanding the wind quintet repertoire by commissioning music from new voices that reflect historical events and the times in which we currently live.”
Imani Winds performs in a special concert event presented by Rockefeller Arts Center and the School of Music with support from the Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund of the Fredonia College Foundation.
The concert will include a collaboration with the Fredonia Wind Quintet comprised School of Music faculty members Barry Crawford (flute), Sarah Hamilton (oboe), Andrew Seigel (clarinet), Marc Guy (horn) and Laura Koepke (bassoon). The two quintets will perform “Mawu,” which is the third movement the suite “Sacred Women” by Jeff Scott.
A reception follows the concert and will offer the opportunity to meet the members of Imani Winds and the School of Music faculty members.
