  Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet  
(Arts)

Two leading chamber ensembles join forces for an absorbing program highlighting the experience of migration. "(im)migration: music of change" features music written or inspired by migrants and immigrants from the African and Latin diaspora. The Catalyst Quartet features alumni from the internationally-acclaimed Sphinx Competition, while Grammy-nominated Imani Winds leads a revolution of the wind quintet. Performing both individually and together, the ensembles transform ancestral stories into music.

The evening will include Imani Winds performing an arrangement of Cuban composer Mongo Santamaria's popular Jazz standard Afro Blue, while the Catalyst Quartet performs Negro Folksongs in Counterpoint by Florence B. Price, the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, as well as the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra.

The ensembles join together for a performance of Concierto de Camara by American composer Roberto Sierra and Sergeant McCauley, a new work by composer and former Catalyst violinist Jessie Montgomery that tracks the journey of her great-grandfather during the Great Migration.
