Imani Winds with the Catalyst Quartet

 

Originally scheduled for January 2021, the Imani Winds and the Catalyst Quartet present a joint program called (im)migration: music of change.

The four works on the program explore different pathways of migration, with each ensemble performing a solo work, followed by a second half in which the wind quintet and string quartet join forces.

Featured on the program is a UMS Co-Commission for both ensembles that was composed by the Catalyst Quartet’s former violinist, Jessie Montgomery. Sergeant McCauley is inspired by the Great Migration of African Americans during the early to middle 20th century, from the perspective of Montgomery’s great-grandfather, William McCauley. It brings together spirituals and work songs that reflect McCauley’s route from Mississippi through the West, north to the Dakotas, and eventually back south to Georgia.

This concert is presented in conjunction with SphinxConnect, a national convening focused on diversity and inclusion in the arts.

Imani Winds and the Catalyst Quartet were originally scheduled to perform in Rackham Auditorium on Friday, January 29, 2021.
