Imani Winds to open Cooperstown Summer Music Festival on August 2

Written By Editor on 7/27/22 | 7/27/22


Cooperstown, N.Y. – The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival is back! On Tuesday, August 2, the Grammy-nominated Imani Winds will perform the opening concert of the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival’s 24th season at 7 p.m. at the Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown.


The groundbreaking wind quintet will present a program showcasing all the sonic possibilities of this combination of instruments, including works by former founding member Valerie Coleman, Indian-American composer Reena Esmail, and an arrangement of Ravel’s ‘Tombeau de Couperin’. This performance will offer the Cooperstown audience a unique opportunity to see what their self-described “revolution and evolution of the wind quintet” is all about.   


“The Imanis will shatter your expectations of what a wind quintet can do,” says Cooperstown Summer Music Festival Founder and Artistic Director Linda Chesis. “I can’t think of a group that better represents the future of classical music in a fun and totally accessible way.” 


Tickets for all shows are $30 for adults and $15 for students and children (except for “Musical Kaleidoscope” by the Caroga Arts Ensemble, where tickets are by suggested donation). Tickets for all events must be purchased in advance either online at or over the phone by calling Purplepass Tickets at 800-316-8559 and selecting Option 1. Please note there is a $2 service fee per phone order. Audience members will be required to show proof of vaccination, including a required booster shot for those who are eligible for all events.
