Grammy-nominated Imani Winds perform at BYU March 12

Imani Winds, the Grammy-nominated wind quintet, will perform Friday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Brigham Young University’s de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are $11, $10 or $6 with a BYU or student ID and can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322 or arts.byu.edu.

Imani Winds’ repertoire includes original works composed and arranged by members of the quintet, as well as compositions featuring European, American, African and Latin American traditions. The program will open with Valerie Coleman’s “Red Clay and Mississippi Delta” and “Le Tombeau de Couperin” by Maurice Ravel. The program also futures the ensemble's original work, “Cane.”

The group is composed of Valerie Coleman on flute, Toyin Spellman-Diaz on oboe, Mariam Adam on clarinet, Jeff Scott on French horn and Monica Ellis on bassoon. The group has toured throughout the United States, Canada and Europe and regularly collaborates with other artists including Paquito D'Rivera and Wayne Shorter.

Imani Winds has released four CDs, including its 2006 Grammy-nominated “The Classical Underground.” A new album is coming out early this fall. The new CD of jazz legends will feature special commissioned works by D’Rivera, Shorter and Jason Moran.
