The Grammy-Winning Imani Winds
Curtis faculty members of The Imani Winds won this year’s Grammy Award, in the category for Best Classical Compendium for the album, Passion for Bach and Coltrane. Mark Dover, the Imani’s clarinetist, was also a producer on the album.

As members of the chamber music faculty at Curtis, Imani Winds coach and mentor student ensembles, sharing their collective experience as a leading chamber ensemble. Their impact has been felt throughout the school as Imani Winds demonstrate their commitment to commissioning, the importance of working meaningfully with community partners, and demonstrating opportunities for forging unique career paths.

In balance with these activities at Curtis, Imani Winds maintain a robust international performance and recording career, continuing to appear regularly on leading presenting series, expanding the repertoire, and helping to build audiences for chamber music worldwide.
