“Beautiful…stark, aggressive, ethereal, playful, thoughtful” —Houston Culture Map
Over the course of their 20+ year career, Imani Winds has discovered what audiences value most from their concerts: a sense of connection—with the music, the performers, the composers, the artistry and beyond. Seamlessly navigating between classical, jazz and world music, no other quintet has forged such a unique, dynamic path through the chamber music landscape. Their clear commitment to promoting diversity in the arts, while still embracing the tradition of the wind quintet repertoire, yields a powerful marriage of the past and the present. The performance features Ligeti’s spirited Six Bagatelles, Reena Esmail’s India-inspired The Light is the Same, John Harbison’s graceful, melodic Quintet for Winds, Lalo Shifrin’s jazz-inspired La Nouvelle Orleans and more.
