Our 2023 Spring Intermezzo Season was a huge success!

IMANI WINDS bassoonist Monica Ellis 
The hall was full on May 11 to hear Grammy Nominated Imani Winds perform in Packard Hall
The program, De Memorias: A Latin Perspective, focused on Latin American composers.  The members of Imani Winds each took time to discuss the program and in particular highlighted the background of the Cuban composers Paquito D'Rivera and Tania León, and their pieces La Fleur de Cayenne, and De Memorias, both complicated compositions to play but ones that clearly evoke the personal memories of the composers' lives in Cuba.
Imani Winds members Brandan Patrick George, flute; Toyin Spellman Diaz, oboe; Monica Ellis, bassoon; Kevin Newton, French horn; and Mark Dover, clarinet stand to acknowledge the enthusiastic audience.
