It is for all winds (including saxophonists), brass, strings, and pianists who would like to study with Imani Winds in mixed chamber ensemble assignments and wind quintets. The basis of the Fellowship program is to provide advanced level musicians an opportunity to improve their musicianship and knowledge of repertoire within various configurations.  Ensemble sizes range from quartet to octet and participants will have a preference as to their repertoire selections based on the instrumentation of their group.
