Grammy-Nominated Quintet Imani Winds Coming to A&M-Kingsville

Texas A&M University-Kingsville is proud to announce Imani Winds as part of the 2013 Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 5, in the Frank C. Smith Recital hall in the Bellamah Music Building. Admission is free and open to the public.

More than North America’s premier wind quintet, 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.

The Presidential Performing and Visual Arts Series is a year-long program of art, music and theatre performances that bring culture and variety to Kingsville for faculty, staff, students and community audiences. The series strives to provide a new element of learning outside the classroom for students as they are entertained and educated through diverse mediums. Community members are welcome to continue life-long learning by attending these events.
