The Geneva Concert series will present the wind quintet Imani Winds at The Smith Opera House on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 3 p.m. The concert is free for HWS students with ID. A pre-concert talk will be held at 2 p.m.
The Grammy-nominated quintet is in their second decade of music making. Known for dynamic collaborations and integrating European, American, African and Latin American traditions into their performances, Imani Winds is currently premiering 10 new works for woodwind quintets written by composers from a variety of musical backgrounds as part of its Legacy Commissioning Project. They recently released their fifth album, “Terra Incognita,” on E1 Music. The album celebrates the Legacy project and debuts new works composed for specifically Imani Winds.
The Geneva stop is just one of many stops on the Imani Winds extensive touring schedule. The quintet has performed at some of the country’s major concert venues including Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and Disney Hall, and this season will feature several international appearances in France, China and Brazil.
The Smith Opera House is located at 82 Seneca Street. Tickets are $25 for adults and free for students grades 12 and under. HWS students with ID are free, compliments of Hobart Student Government and William Smith Congress.
