Grammy-nominated wind quintet Imani Winds has carved out a distinct presence in the classical music world with their energetic playing, culturally poignant programming and adventurous collaborations. Actively seeking to engage new music and voices into the modern classical idiom, member-composers regularly contribute compositions and arrangements to the ensemble’s expanding repertoire. Additionally, their deep commitment to commissioning new work enriches the traditional wind quintet repertoire.

Imani Winds is excited to announce, Brandon Patrick George, their new flutist stepping in for Valerie Coleman.
