Sunday Service: Imani Winds at North Star Church of the Arts
Imani Winds, the GRAMMY-nominated, NY-based wind quintet renowned for its virtuosity and record of commissioning bold new works by composers of color, leads a "Sunday Service" at North Star Church of the Arts in downtown Durham. On the heels of their Saturday, November 16 performance of french hornist and composer Jeff Scott's Passion for Bach and Coltrane, the quintet will give a lecture/demonstration about the musical and cultural conversations at work in the piece - bridging classical and jazz, sacred and secular.
Sunday, November 17, 11 AM
North Star Church of the Arts
220 W Geer Street, Durham
Free and open to the public
Coffee and pastries provided for all attendees
