"(im)migration: music of change" with Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet
Hammer Theatre Center presents (im)migration: music of change with Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet, two ensembles that have dominated the classical world joining forces for a night of breathtaking music. Included in the performance is a new Jessie Montgomery composition inspired by her great-grandfather’s migration across the United States. The Imani Winds ensemble has received rave reviews for their “impressive symbiosis and mastery of rhythm” (The Chicago Maroon), while Catalyst Quartet has been said to produce “a sweet, airy sound, capable of many shades of expression” (The Spokesman-Review). Catalyst Quartet is composed of violinist Jessie Montgomery, violinist Karla Donehew-Perez, violist Paul Laraia, and cellist Karlos Rodriguez. They will be joined on stage by Imani Winds’ flutist Brandon Patrick George, oboist Toyin Spellman-Diaz, clarinetist Mark Dover, French hornist Jeff Scott, and bassoonist Monica Ellis.
