Visiting Artist Series presents Imani Winds• March 29, 2010
Wabash College’s Visiting Artists Series will present Imani Winds at 8 p.m., Thursday, April 1, in Salter Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center.
Imani Winds has established itself as more than a wind quintet. Since 1997, the Grammy nominated ensemble has taken a unique path, carving out a distinct presence in the classical music world with its dynamic playing, culturally poignant programming, genre-blurring collaborations, and inspirational outreach programs. With two member composers and a deep commitment to commissioning new work, the group is enriching the traditional wind quintet repertoire while meaningfully bridging European, American, African and Latin American traditions.
Imani Winds have four releases on Koch International Classics, including their 2006 Grammy Award nominated recording entitled, The Classical Underground. Their most recent release, This Christmas, was named to holiday “best of” lists upon its release in 2008.
Seating for Visiting Artists Series events will be by general admission, though free tickets are required.
