Guest Artist Recital: icarus Quartet

Friday, October 15, 2021 - 8:00 pm
Davis Hall, GBPAC

Visiting ensemble icarus Quartet will present a piano and percussion recital. Passionate about educating and engaging with the next generation of musicians, iQ often works in school and university settings. Members Larry Weng, Yevgeny Yontov, Matt Keown, and Jeff Stern are all celebrated soloists in their own rights, and together they have found a special chemistry and inimitable joy playing chamber music. They are dedicated to the discovery, creation, and performance of new music, but what distinguishes their approach to contemporary music is a strong training and background in the classical genre. icarus Quartet is committed to performing new works with a studied and convincing interpretation that mirrors the validity of works with performance practices developed over centuries. This event is free and open to the public.
