Performance Dates

  • Wed Jan 26 2022 7:30 PM


Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

The acclaimed Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet present a bold combination of chamber music for winds and strings with (im)migration: music of change. Known for their dynamic performances and innovative repertoire, Grammy-nominated Imani Winds leads a revolution of the wind quintet while Catalyst Quartet features alumni from the internationally acclaimed Sphinx Organization. Performing individually and together, they present a program highlighting the experiences of migration, built around Sergeant McCauley, their newly commissioned piece from violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery.


Dazzling ensemble playing … the whole is vastly more than the sum of its parts.
