The Imani Winds is Chamber Music Northwest’s Artists-in-Residence for the 2017-18 Season and we can’t wait to welcome them back to Thursdays @ Three! Extolled by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “what triumph sounds like,” 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 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 European, American, African and Latin American traditions. Tune in to hear this outstanding ensemble hosted by Christa Wessel, Thursday April 19 at 3pm.
