Imani Winds have led both a revolution and the evolution of the wind quintet through their dynamic playing and adventurous programming. Fresh off their 2024 Grammy win for their album Passion for Bach and Coltrane, the trailblazing ensemble will perform repertoire spanning from traditional chamber music to newly commissioned works. Featured composers include Paquito D’Rivera, Billy Taylor, Damien Geter, Valerie Coleman, Andy Akiho, and Carlos Simon. This edition of Live From WFMT was recorded in concert at the Music Institute of Chicago on February 24, 2024.
