Imani Winds with special guest Stefon Harris

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

Bowker Auditorium   7:30 pm
$25, $15, Five College/GCC/STCC students and Youth 17 and under: $15

The Grammy-nominated Imani Winds have taken a unique path, carving out a distinct presence in the classical music world with their dynamic playing, culturally poignant programming, and genre-blurring collaborations. This concert will feature their unique collaboration with jazz vibraphonist Stefon Harris whose passionate artistry, energetic stage presence, and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him into the forefront of the current jazz scene.

 

 

In addition to the performance of Harris" work A Sonic Painting in Wood, Metal and Wind, the concert will feature Imani Winds and Harris playing together and separately. According to Harris, “We will blur the lines between improvisation and composition, and in turn, between classical and jazz, by introducing improvisation to the woodwind quintet."

 

“If it's possible for a classically trained wind quintet to rock the house, Imani Winds blows the roof off."
