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 program features each ensemble in a solo work, followed by a second half in which the wind quintet and string quartet join forces. The Catalyst Quartet, founded by the Sphinx Organization in 2010, performs their former violinist Jessie Montgomery’s work, Sergeant McCauley. The UMS co-commission 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 her ancestor’s route from Mississippi through the West, north to the Dakotas, and eventually back to Georgia.

The Imani Winds ensemble has transformed the traditional 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.

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.
