Tuesday Musical Association is bringing the Imani Winds to the library to perform and talk about their dynamic work. Extolled by the Washington Post as “exuding a sultry sophistication during performances,” Imani Winds has established itself as one of the most successful chamber music ensembles in the United States. Since 1997, the Grammy-nominated quintet has taken a unique path, carving out a distinct presence in the classical music world with dynamic playing, culturally poignant programming, adventurous 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. This free program is cosponsored by the Tuesday Musical Association and the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library.
Members of Imani Winds:
Valerie Coleman, flute/composer
Toyin Spellman-Diaz, oboe
Mark Dover, clarinet
Jeff Scott, French horn/composer
Monica Ellis, bassoon
