First Presbyterian Church (Woodlawn)
Friday, October 20, 2023 at 7pm
Fourth Presbyterian Church (Gold Coast)
The quartet’s 2023-24 10th Anniversary Season season opens with two performances of Chicago Public Art in Song, an interdisciplinary program incubated over the past year that celebrates the musical, sculptural, and visual art of our city.
Repertoire features performances of songs inspired by Chagall's Four Seasons mosaic, the Picasso, Chicago's Miró, Cloudgate, as well as song sets dedicated to Pilsen street murals and Chicago's iconic sprawling parklands.
Performances take place at parallel venues that have served as neighborhood centers for their own arts communities on Chicago’s North and South Sides; First Presbyterian Church in Woodlawn at 3:00pm on Sunday, October 15, and Fourth Presbyterian Church Magnificent Mile at 7:00pm on October 20.
The quartet will be joined by pianist Dana Brown and concerts will feature the artwork of Chicago visual artist Arthur Wright and photographer Elliot Mandel. Each 90 minute program will be followed by a complimentary artist reception with the performers.
