Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet

 

Imani Winds and the Catalyst Quartet present a program called (im)migration: music of change.

The program features each ensemble in a solo work, followed by a second half where the wind quintet and string quartet join forces. Catalyst violinist Jessie Montgomery’s work, Sergeant McCauley, is inspired by the Great Migration of African Americans during the early to middle 20th century, from the perspective of her great-grandfather, William McCauley. The work brings together spirituals and work songs that reflect her ancestor’s route from Mississippi through the West, north to the Dakotas, and eventually south to Georgia. The Imani Winds ensemble has evolved the wind quintet through adventurous programming and imaginative collaborations, commissioning music from new voices that reflect historical events and the times in which we currently live. The Catalyst Quartet features alumni and laureates of the Sphinx Competition.
