Kusel Auditorium, Sleepy Hollow, NY
A popular participant in our Partnerships in Education program, this innovative group now makes its debut on our concert series. It has been applauded by The Washington Post as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music.” In January 2019 they received Chamber Music America’s prestigious Visionary Award in recognition of ensembles who have “led the field in creative thinking and innovation!”
At this concert the PUBLIQuartet will perform works from their latest CD, Freedom and Faith, which was nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.
