Friday Earbud Selections:

Imani WindsLegacy Commissioning Project (LCP) commemorates the ensemble’s tenth anniversary through the commissioning of ten compositions by established and emerging composers of color.

Over a five-year period  Imani Winds is commissioning, premiering and touring ten brand new works! The ambitious and already highly successful project is bringing many musical traditions together. Elements  explored embrace African and Afro-Cuban traditions, Asian and Middle Eastern culture as well as Jazz. Upcoming premieres include Daniel Bernard Roumain’s “Five Chairs and One Table” at Carnegie Hall’s Zankell Hall on March 8 as well as the New York Premiere of Jason Moran’s “Cane”.
