On April 29 at 6:30 p.m., 9th Street Quartet performs their final ‘Rush Hour’ Concert, a program that includes the hidden gem of George Walker’s String Quartet No. 1 and Take This Hammer, a piece written by one of 9SQ’s favorite living composers, Steven Snowden.
On May 11 at 7:30 p.m., the 9SCM Youth String Quartet Intensive will also hold their final concert of the season, and will perform an entire program of beautiful music written by living composers including Caroline Shaw, Jessie Montgomery and Osvaldo Golijov. Come see the incredible skills developed by these talented musicians who represent over fifteen area schools in grades 8 through 12.
Members of the String Quartet Intensive explore how to communicate and cooperate through performance, and how to balance leadership, independence, and support to bring self-led performances to life.
