The Grammy-winning wind quintet returns tonight (Thursday) with a typically varied program: original works by Imani Winds’ own flautist Valerie Coleman, contemporary pieces by Karel Husa and Narang Prangcharoen and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.
Of the last, the critic for the (Portland) Oregonian wrote, “Even at 20 minutes, it pared down Stravinsky’s 35-minute score substantially, but it was ingenious, implying much of Stravinsky’s orchestral palette in just five parts.”
Imani Winds will perform tonight (Thursday, March 6) at 7:30 PM at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall (2nd and State streets, Troy). Tickets are $28 and $20, with a $3 student discount available. For more info, call the box office at 273-0038.
