December 6 @ 7:30 pm
The Grammy-nominated PUBLIQuartet, hailed by The Washington Post as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music,” reignites Town Music with its energetic and limitless conception of the string quartet. A dance-infused score from Jessie Montgomery (a past member of the group) proves why she is America’s hottest composer today, and Vijay Iyer’s tribute to James Brown shows just how funky a classical ensemble can be. PUBLIQuartet also brings its exceptional talent for collective improvisation, riffing on everything from free jazz icon Ornette Coleman to Dvořák’s classic “American” Quartet.
Curtis Stewart (violin), Janinna Norpoth (violin), Nick Revel (viola), and Hamilton Berry (cello)
A one-night-only livestream of this event will be available.
