This week on Music Fridays, Turtle Island Quartet
Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American Folklore, the Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and most recently, the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Classical Crossover Album, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles, and by devising a performance practice that honors both, the state of the art has inevitably been redefined. Cellist nonpareil Yo-Yo Ma has proclaimed TIQ to be “a unified voice that truly breaks new ground – authentic and passionate – a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.”
Turtle Island Quartet will be performing a full program on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm in the Playhouse Theatre in the MAC. Tickets available at the MAC ticket office.
Noon, MAC 140, free admission.
Next week: COD music alum Kevin O'Donnell talks about his life in the music business.
