The Harlem Quartet: Take the 'A' Train
The Harlem Quartet, a string quartet, will perform music by Wynton Marsalis, Chick Corea, Billy Strayhorn, Guido Gavilan, and Walter Piston. Join us at 6:30pm for a pre-concert mixer! The Harlem Quartet's mission is to advance diversity in classical music, engaging young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers.
As the country pauses today in recognition of the only American holiday dedicated to the memory of those who died while serving in our military, offering dramatic graveside ceremonies and moments of silence. Unfortunately much of the country will simply carry on as usual.
