Gwendolyn Brooks centenary celebration
"When I start writing a poem, I don't think about models or about what anybody else in the world has done." - Gwendolyn Brooks
The brilliant and intrepid Imani Winds join the citywide celebrations and pay tribute to Chicago poet Gwendolyn Brooks' centenary with this concert that honors artists who forge their own unique paths. The program includes works by Wayne Shorter and Jason Moran written for the Imani Winds, music by two of the Imani members, and world premieres of three works written for the occasion.
