Black + Beethoven Series:
Performer: Ivalas Quartet Program Features: Beethoven – String Quartet Op. 18, No. 4 in C Minor Walker – String Quartet No. 1
The Ivalas Quartet is one of the most exciting young string quartets touring today. In this program, they present Beethoven’s most exciting and passionate string quartet alongside a wonderful quartet by black American composer, George Walker. Some other treats might be in store, too! The Ivalas’ mission is to present and represent composers and musicians of color, and they do so with energy, thoughtfulness, and passion. Recently awarded first prize in the 2019 WDAV Young Artists Chamber Music Competition, the Ivalas Quartet also took first prize 2018 Briggs Chamber Music Competition and was named a semifinalist group at both the M-Prize competition and Concert Artists Guild competition in New York. The Ivalas was the 2018 Fellowship Quartet at the Bowdoin International Music Festival and in 2017 the group was named the Fellowship String Quartet at the Anchorage Chamber Music Festival. Ivalas’ members are from both the black and latinx communities and the group was formed with the intent to play a part in bringing greater visibility to musicians of color. They say, “We feel a strong responsibility to not only play with all of our hearts but to strive for the highest standard of playing in every performance and to be living proof of the power of diversity in all art forms.”
Tickets include petite appetizers individually boxed and drinks in addition to the unique, intimate settings in beautiful homes.
