SMTD MLK Remembrance Concert featuring Imani Winds & SMTD students

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

8:00pm, Walgreen Drama Center, Stamps Auditorium


Imani Winds, Grammy-nominated wind quintet, will be joined by SMTD students to commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a concert of music, song, dance, and spoken word. Since 1997, Imani Winds has taken a unique path carving out a distinct presence in the classical music world with its 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 American, European, African, and Latin American traditions. From Mendelssohn to Astor Piazzolla to Wayne Shorter and Stravinsky, Imani Winds seeks to engage new music and new voices into the modern classical idiom.
