On Sunday, April 22, North America’s premier wind quintet, “Imani Winds,” will perform at a 3 p.m. concert. Imani Winds’ extensive touring schedule has brought them to most of this country’s major concert venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Disney Hall and Kimmel Center. The group is frequently engaged by the premier chamber music series in Boston, San Francisco, Portland, Philadelphia and New York, and has also played virtually every major university performing arts series.

The final performance in the series will feature “David Holt & The Lightning Bolts” on Saturday, May 5, at 7:30 p.m. For over three decades, Holt’s passion for traditional music and culture has fueled a successful performing and recording career. He has earned four Grammy Awards and performed and recorded with many of his mentors including Doc Watson, Grandpa Jones, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff and Chet Atkins. Today, Holt tours the country performing solo, with Doc Watson, and with his band, The Lightning Bolts. Visit for more information.
