Penn State University | Imani Winds & Catalyst Quartet

Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet will join talents for a concert featuring a new work by Catalyst violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery. The composition is inspired by the Great Migration of African Americans, during the early to middle twentieth century, from the perspective of Montgomery’s great-grandfather William McCauley.

The program also includes Imani performing Afro Blue (a jazz standard) by Mongo Santamaria and Cane by Jason Moran (inspired by the composer’s Louisiana bayou ancestry); Catalyst playing Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout (a mixture of Western classical and Andean folk elements) by Gabriela Frank; and both ensembles performing Concierto de Camara by Puerto Rico native Roberto Sierra
