Performance + Music Arts
March 2-5, 2017
Presented by the Music Department
The Aizuri Quartet, an all-female ensemble hailed by the Washington Post for presenting a "captivating performance that drew from that meld of intellect, technique and emotions” will present a four-day residency entitled Blueprint. This residency will feature several student and public events and conclude with a full-length concert at the Carriage House featuring Blueprint, a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw as well as the world premiere of Steven Dankner's 19th string quartet. These two contemporary pieces will be paired alongside great masterworks by Mozart and Beethoven. All events are free and open to the public.
